  2. Damage didn't extend up to 1840 so far as I know. There wasn't much fire damage to 1838 either but it did require pulling up some of their roof and spraying a fire hose along a rear support beam. I think they'll likely need an entirely new roof. Definitely tons of smoke that rather through all of adjacent attics though which is what people saw billowing out of the cupolas.
