  • The Great Fire of London took place 350 years ago, in September, 1666.

  • It started in a bakery on Pudding Lane.

  • There was no rain that summer.

  • London was very dry and a brisk east wind spread the flames.

  • Fire fighting equipment was not much good.

  • And it was difficult to get water unless near the river.
