The Great Fire


The Great Fire Of London

The great fire of London started in Pudding Lane

The summer of 1666 had been long and hot. The wooden houses were dry and close together so the fire spread quickly.

The fire fighters had only leather buckets and siphons to put water on the fire.

The fire was controlled by blowing up houses with gunpowder so it had nothing left to burn.
