It would be interesting to see the inside of that breaker panel in the last pic, to see how many tripped or if there was more "fine workmanship" in it too.

I'll bet that SER (SEU? SBC? BVD? RSVP?) cable put on quite a lightshow!!

As they might say in Texas: "It needed burnin'."

The F.D Should have just let it burn... would have done the homeowner a BIG favour.

Nah, then he would have rebuilt his house, then it would have collapsed on him during it's next fire.
