In the summer of 16 66 the city of London was consumed by a great fire. 13,000 houses were destroyed. 89 churches were incinerated, 80% of building stock erased in a flash of flames. Not since the burning of Rome had a major city gone up like this. It was an exceedingly hot, dry summer. Hot gale force winds made conditions ripe for this disaster. They say the fire was an accident, started in a bakery in Pudding Lane, Mister Foreign, or the Royal Baker had left some members still burning near his ovens. At the same time, London's wooden buildings were a tinderbox, brittle, dry for the summer heat. It was a terrible accident waiting to happen.
