Risen from the ashes of Great Fire of London, happened September 2, 1666, apparently started in a bakery on Paddingleyn near London Bridge, when Thomas Farrinor, royal baker forgot to extinguish the fire in the stove before going to bed. Hot coals were lying side by side on the kindling, and soon his wooden house was in flames. While London houses were mostly wooden, with a gable roof, and burned as large matchboxes. After two or three hours a few streets turned into a fiery hell; the spread of fire contributed to a strong east wind fanned the flames. Five days later, when the fire is over 430 acres (t. E. About 4/5 square) turned into ashes. It was destroyed about 13,000 houses and 90 churches; even the huge Cathedral of St. Paul in ruins.
