In September 1666, a small fire broke out at the king's bakery in London, England, in the early morning. Several fateful factors worked together to turn this small blaze into a catastrophic conflagration that changed the city forever. This riveting account of a city set ablaze is supported by primary sources such as maps, diaries, and royal proclamations. Readers will be fascinated by old-fashioned firefighting techniques and people's reactions as the fire spread and burned for days. Images of London on fire will ignite their imaginations and further enable them to understand this era and setting in European history.
