Get out NOW.

From Hell in a Handbasket comes this warning on the speed and severity of home fires:
...found people inside those burning houses, all dead. Most of them were asleep at the time the fire started, and that's where he found them. It seems that smoke is the big killer in any house fire, which is understandable when one considers that your house is a big box that might as well have been designed to catch and concentrate deadly fumes. Added to the problem is that just about everything in your house will emit huge clouds of poisonous fumes while it burns. One breath of this stuff and the inside of your lungs are coated with plastic, and no power on Earth can save you.

Good info. Make sure you watch the video. Scary!
