The dystopian novel Fahrenheit 451 written by author Ray Bradbury in 1953, shows what he speculates the fate of society to be. The novel takes place in the corrupt United States when most people no longer read books and are satisfied only by entertainment. In the novel, the fire has been perceived in many different ways by the main character, Guy Montag, who was once a fireman.

More homes are being built out of lighter material along with being built closer and closer together. Each can lead to extreme destruction, homes being lost, people being displaced, and even death.
