    How terribly sad. Those old houses have cotton wiring, and many have plaster walls..they burn fast and hot. We lost our home to a house fire in 2005-luckily we all got out-but the fireman said there wasn't much they could do as the fire traveled through the (cotton) wiring into the rest of the home, and the old homes are kindling waiting to be ignited. Prayers for all in this terrible fire...
