* ''Endless Love'': In both the original 1981 movie and 2014 remake, David -- upset that he was not allowed to see Jade until she graduates from high school -- tries to regain favor with the Butterfield family by attempting to establish himself as a hero, doing so by setting a small pile of newspapers on fire on the porch of the Butterfields' house. However, when he returns to put the fire out, the fire grows faster than he expects, and the fire quickly spreads inside the house. Everyone escapes safely, but it is too late ... the house burns to the ground.

* A rather dark and tragic example occurs in XMenEvolution fanfic [[http://www.fanfiction.net/s/8480882/1/A-Time-to-Burn-Bridges A Time to Burn Bridges]] by [[http://www.fanfiction.net/u/2359030/Artemiss-Liege Artemis's Liege]]. Rogue returns to the house where she was raised, after her diabolical adoptive mother Mystique cruelly uses her then betrays her, in order to bury her recently deceased other adoptive mother who was actually good to her. After the funeral, Rogue douses the interior of the house with gasoline to deliberately create a fire, momentarily reconsiders her actions for a few moments after reminiscing about the happy memories she has there, and then just [[LetThePastBurn lights up her childhood home anyway]].

* A fire that destroyed a funeral home and killed its owners (a kindly middle-aged couple) is the main driver in the often tumultuous relationship between their sons, TheUndertaker and {{Wrestling/Kane}}. During a 1998 episode of ''WWERaw'', their mutual friend-enemy PaulBearer reveals that Kane (Undertaker's "brother") had set fire to the funeral home, killing their parents; it had been thought by Undertaker that Kane was also "killed" in the fire, only for him to learn that Kane survived. Bearer (who was at the funeral home when the fire broke out, and escaped without injury) had Kane institutionalized after suffering extreme emotional and physical trauma, and he claimed that Undertaker knew that Kane survived, learned of his brother's whereabouts and began abusing him for his sadistic pleasure. The story continued on and off for the past 15-plus years, but always comes back to this root story.
