"Aspenite", a favorite of shoddy contractors and unethical home builders could be better named "Rapid Fire". It consists of what used to be hamster/pet shavings and toxic glues. When that stuff starts outgassing, if still standing, in 10 to 15 years you are looking at a boom in lung diseases.

I live on the street. I found that rescue crews were delayed by precious seconds because of people coming for a look. People should stay away from these places so that the emergency vehicles needed could get to the fire immediately without having to maneouver around people sightseeing. It was so bad they had police officers directing traffic. I hope they find their cats. I am a feline owner and lover. Our animals are apart of the family. I can only imagine what they are going through.

In All Honesty :
The new homes being slapped together these days are of poor quality to say the least. They're far toO close together and it's dangerous as we have just seen. There really should be a law against how close together these things can be. Considering the low grade materials they are made of and the speed with which they are erected then there is no wonder we don't see more of this. Ya, we have a builders code, but trust me, these things barely make the grade!!!

Attached housing has a minimum 1 hour fire separation between units. The IAFF and IAFC have representation on the committees that create the National Fire Code and Life Safety Code, but no input into the National Building Code.

While skipping over the fact that house shouldn't be this close together (unless it's row housing for the po' folk), I wonder what shoddy materials the contractor used for these houses, and then charged top rate. Perhaps if not built with sawdust and glue, it may not have burned down so quickly than if it were made with more hard woods.

One house would have been lost and limited damage to the others if they were not so close. Its almost better having a Row house then what is built today

I wish homes weren't so close together. Should be a law.
