Um, how can anyone “like” this post… A family (or a group of people if it’s a share house) have just lost their home and unless the place was empty they have just lost a whole lot of other stuff too.

“The three bedroom brick veneer house has been severely damaged and estimated at $500,000.”

Does not compute…

Common sense tells me they ‘like’ it because it is a story of interest to them and not because they like someone’s house burning down. At least I hope that’s the case…

I assume the like/dislike icons work the same as on other discussion sites – you “like” a post if you think it is interesting, informative, well-written. You “dislike” a post if you think it’s uninteresting, uninformative, poorly written.
