The Denton Manor shown in the postcard was designed by Sir Arthur Blomfield for Sir W. E. Welby Gregory and built between 1879 and 1883.
The fire broke out in the private chapel, caused probably by a flue overheating.
The house was eventually demolished around 1939.
The flames may have added by the postcard manufacturer.
