This sounds like something that should be obvious, but some people can go their whole lives without feeling that sort of kinship from one human to another purely because of the fact that they are both human and feel the same feeling son occasion. You have finally seen yourself as a part of this great tapestry that we call life.
The reason that this interpretation makes sense is because of the range of emotions that you display when something like this happens. You see all kinds of different things going on and feel the pain of the family that was involved. You know what it is like to be in their situation because you are human too. And even if you donвЂ™t feel exactly the same way as they do and donвЂ™t know exactly what it is like to have your house burn down, it means that you know what it is like to feel the swirled mélange of emotions that they are feeling. The fact is, even though you have never been in their situation, you are human and you can sympathize. Though there might not be any houses around you that are actually burning, you can take this new-found can-do attitude and use it to help others. Make them feel good about themselves and possibly try some charity work too. It will make you feel good as well.
If you dream that it is your own house that is burning down then this suggests that you feel like your life is coming down around you. You have probably made some poor decisions in the past and they are coming back to bite you. You are going through a period of complete and utter ruin and nothing is salvageable from the rubble. You will have to either rebuild your life anew, or move somewhere else and take everything you have left with you. This is metaphorically speaking of course. But sometimes your troubles follow you. Just remember that if you try to run away from your responsibilities and what matters to you.
To dream that your childhood house is burning down does not have a meaning that is as tragic as you might think. To see your childhood home burning down in your dreams could just mean that you have finally left your past behind you. Even after we get old and grow up there are many things in our pasts that we try to cling to, In some cases this can be healthy and a good idea but in other cases it might be better to just let things go so you can move on from your childish ways. In some ways seeing your childhood home burn down in your dreams is a good thing. And you should remember this before you go out and do anything rash in regards to that dream.
