What time did the fire start? What direction was the wind blowing the fire? Why did so few people die? How strong did the wind blow? How fast did the fire move?

The fire spread very easily because the houses were so close together and were made of wood. Also it was very windy and some places had lots of oil and alcohol which made the fire worse.
