    Yes there would be a smell after 50 years if the basement was locked and sealed and never opened after the fire. It would smell like burnt flesh, wood, musky. Have you ever been near a fire? If so write what you smelled. Have you ever burned your hair like on your arm or something? It would have a weird smell, I really don't know how to describe that. Just a weird smell for burnt hair.

    I hope that I helped.

    Source(s): me, burning wood, burnt my hair. and burning my hand aren't I careful. LOL

    I think a smell would still exist. Just what it would be like, no clue.

    Smell is our reaction to particles of substance in the air that we breathe.

    mold = musky, earth = soil, soot = fire remains long lasts in time so I cry my tears all day at the sight of
