    ''it'' or ''I"?

    In Yorba Linda, 69-year-old Arnold Caudill barely escaped the flames and saw his home of 21 years gutted by fire. Asked if he would rebuild he said: "I haven't thought that far ahead. All I know is, I didn't like the way it felt."

    I wonder why in the text above they used ''it''. Is it a typo? Shouldn't it be ''I"?

    Re: ''it'' or ''I"?

    In this context, "It" is used to refer to a thing previously mentioned or easily identified, in this case what the feeling was when seeing your home destroyed by fire.
