Oh, forgot to mention, 50's houses are typically wood frame, bungalow or split level. Concrete foundation. In ours, the floor joists were embedded in the concrete walls of the basement so maybe in that era of house, it would be a little harder for a basement fire to spread to the upstairs walls? In our 80's house the joists appear to be sitting on top of the basement walls.
