    The Great Fire of London The Great Fire of London Presentation Transcript

    • The Great Fire of London
    • The famous ‘Great Fire of London’ started on Sunday 2 September 1666 in a bakers shop.
    • The shop was in ‘Pudding Lane’ and belonged to Thomas Faynor who baked for the King.
    • The baker forgot to put out the fire he used to bake bread. Some fire wood was set alight and the fire began.
    • The buildings in London at the time were made of wood and had thatched roofs so they burnt very easily.
    • The buildings were also very close together, so the fire spread from one street to another quickly.
    • A very strong wind also helped the fire to spread quickly across the city.
    • There were no firemen or fire engines so people tried to put the fire out with buckets of water.
    • The fire destroyed many buildings in London. They were later rebuilt using bricks instead of wood.
    • Samuel Pepys kept a diary of what he saw during the fire. He watched the fire from across the River Thames.
    • The fire continued burning for four days. Luckily only 4 people were reported to have died.
    • After the fire a fire service was set up in London to make sure that it did not happen again.
    • A statue was made to remember the ‘Great Fire of London’. The Monument still stands in London today.
