Follow The Fire

Follow The Fire: Follow the Great Fire of London in 1666 from its start in the early hours of a Sunday morning through 4 days of danger and flames with tales of heroism, cowardice and blame. The summer of 1666 had been long, dry and hot. When fire broke out in the King’s bakers, it spread quickly from house to house, destroying everything in its path. The people of London had two choices; take what they could carry and run, or stay and fight the fire. Meet the people who lived through the Great Fire, and find out who ran, who helped and who was executed for starting it!
