* Harry's apartment complex gets burned down in ''Literature/{{Changes}}''. This is one of the first signs that the situation is a whole lot more dire than it's been in the previous books, though Harry and burning buildings aren't exactly strangers. ''Literature/BloodRites'' even opens with "The building was on fire [[SuspiciouslySpecificDenial and it wasn't my fault]]."

* ''TheHoganFamily'': A memorable 1987 episode, "Burned Out," depicts the Hogans being forced to flee their home after an old lamp shorts out in the attic. The upper story and attic are heavily damaged, but the main focus of the episode is on the family's renewed grief over losing their matriarch, Valerie (Valerie Harper having left the series earlier in the year, and her character having being killed off in a previous episode). The most poignant scene involves teen-aged son David investigating the damage in his room, and seeing the charred remains of his mother's picture on what used to be his nightstand; he sees it and breaks down in tears. (In a way, that scene depicted a reality for many families who lose a loved one, then most if not all pictures and other momentoes of the deceased loved one's life are destroyed by fire.)

** "[[Recap/TheSmurfsSpecial2TheSmurfsChristmasSpecial The Smurfs Christmas Special]]," where Gargamel uses a spell to destroy
