Well u can use a digital meter and check resistance from end to end of each wire. The meter would read OL wich means an overload of resistance. Measuring voltage would be dangerous because u have to apply power. You do not use power when measuring resistance. But the process of measuring each wire may be time consuming. If you could find a schematic of the houses wiring it would help i isolating the exact wiring.
