I assume everyone else is dead.
That could be...I guess it did show him lighting his fire first, but that seems like a bad plan. Everyone assumes everyone is dead because the first guy can't light his fire.
Yeah, that's probably not it. The best plan would be everyone light your fire at sundown so we know you're safe. It did seem to be later, so maybe everyone else had lit their fires for the night without us seeing it and the kids were trying to call for help. But that would mean the other people saw that Krasinski's family's fire wasn't lit and didn't really do anything about it. Maybe it's more of an informational fire lighting than any sort of call to action. Like, "Oh by the way honey, the neighbors didn't light their fire tonight. Looks like we have one less neighbor now" and nobody is going to do anything about it.
On a similar note, there's no way the neighbors didn't see/hear the huge fireworks that were set off. So that right there should give them a heads up that "Hey, things aren't going great over here"
