Transcript of The Great Fire of London by Miss Dunn

The Great Fire of London It started on the evening of September 2nd 1666 in a bakery on Pudding Lane. The Bakers name was Thomas Farryner. He had accidently left the oven on and an ember escaped starting the fire. The people of London tried to fight the fire with buckets. They tried to stop it spreading so quickly by using gun powder and knocking down houses as they were all very close together. The people realised that fire was too fierce to fight and started to flee the city. Samuel Pepys, a famous writer at the time kept a diary that gives us the details that we kow today about the fire. He was the one who told the King of the fire and asked him to help. King Charles II sent help for the people of london and finally the fire burnt out. Luckily, only 8 people died during the fire but over 300, 000 houses were lost and some very famous building like St Pauls Cathedral.
