I'm not sure *why,* but I can only imagine either the inability to leave, confusion, stubbornness to leave, the quickness with which the fire moved and consumed, or simply being unaware of the potential danger they were in.

In one area in Santa Rosa, many said the fire came suddenly in the early morning hours with no warning.

My 84 year old mother has very poor hearing. She would not hear someone knocking on the door or ringing the doorbell. She doesn't hear her cell phone ring unless it is in her hands and is on vibrate. Her sense of smell is decreased as well, so some of the elderly would not have been able to respond as rapidly to the threat.

Some have mobility issues, visual issues, cognitive issues, so I am not surprised that the majority of those that died were elderly.

Yes, that's part of what I'm talking about. I don't know the reason involving each who perished, but it's a variety of factors, especially where the elderly are concerned, as both you and I have suggested.
