In September 1666, a small fire broke out at the king's bakery in London, England. 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.
