Probably not very long before it xpaddy, if it was the 62/63 handbook, because the fire was in February 1963.....

The only thing I can remember about the morning of the fire, was getting up and giving my hot water
bottle to my Mother and going back to bed and sleep. I was told about it when I got up later.

Our house backed onto the Meeting House but, I didn't even hear the Siren go off and couldn't
understand what all the commotion was about!
