The Burning Home is a location in Final Fantasy VI. The largest house in Thamasa, the entrance is blocked by a child who lives there. According to the Mayor of Thamasa, the resident keeps a large number of Flame Rods stocked.
For some reason, unlike the collapsing house in Tzen, the burning house does not have a timer on it. This gives the player as much time as needed to equip Strago or to fight as many Balloons as they wish. The Balloons appear as little flames and are fixed encounters.
When Terra, Locke and Shadow are investigating the town and spend the night, Relm is playing with a friend at the house when it catches fire. Strago tries to put the fires out with magic, revealing that the townsfolk are naturally able to use magic. The rescue effort fails though, the Mayor of Thamasa speculating it is due to the residents keeping so many Flame Rods in the house, and Strago, Terra and Locke head inside to find Relm.
After making their way through the house and defeating the source of the blaze, the monster Flame Eater, they find Relm protected by Shadow's dog Interceptor, but the house begins to collapse and they are knocked unconscious. Shadow arrives and saves them by using a smoke bomb to escape, the house collapsing afterwards.
In the ending, the people of Thamasa can be seen rebuilding the home.
