Londoners remember: a giant model of the city was set ablaze on Great Fire anniversary 9/7/2016 • M.
In 1666, the powerful fire raged in London for as many as three days, destroying everything on its path...
This massive conflagration started accidentally on the 2nd of September. Thomas Farriner, the owner of a bakery located on Pudding Lane, forgot to extinguish the fire in his oven. Little did he know that this small mistake was going to lay the larger part of the city in ashes...
80% of London's mostly wooden medieval buildings were destroyed. About 90% of the citizens were left homeless. Everything ended on the 5th of September. An interested thing is that only 6 deaths were officially documented, as most of the victims were poor people, who hadn't even been counted in any official lists.
This year Londoners marked the 350th anniversary of the event by setting a large model of the city on fire. The performance was impressive:
