Sadly no, our houses burn just as quick, although you may be left with 4 stone or brick walls and nothing in between.

I think its cause your housing systems were all made of ancient bricks that don't burn quickly so there is no rush.
Now that does make sense

I asked my brother-in-law, who happens to be a fire captain a couple towns over from me, for his take. He explained that they do not want to run the hose over or under the vehicle in case the owner returns and attempts to move it. He stated that this could damage the hoses. Running it through the vehicle prevents it from being moved at all until the fire is contained.

Here in the UK though, police close the street immediately there is a fire and there is no chance your car is going anywhere even if you wanted.
