I couldn't figure out # 2! I do read this blog regularly, so there's an excuse.

Possible alternate answer for #4: The recluse lived in an apartment with gas lighting. He extinguished the flames, but left the gas running.

I admit, though, I like the lighthouse answer better.

#2; The fireman's name was embroidered on his shirt.

I suggest an alternative answer to the second one: the fireman was the only person with a name tag

re: #2
or....the police ask three of the four male poker players their names and, finding no one named John, they arrest the fireman.

Or for #2, the police walk in and see the 3 other people dead on the floor. Leaving one fireman who's name doesn't matter because he's playing cards over the dead peoples bodies.
