The Aftermath of Pudding Lane where the Great Fire started.
The fire started during the early hours of the day on Sunday, September 2, 1666. It began in Thomas Faynor's (also referred to as Thomas Farriner) bakery on Pudding Lane after they put out a small fire. They were convinced that the fire was put out, but the fire blazed on and sent the house down in flames. The fire spread easily throughout the city, especially since the houses were built out of old wood, set closely together and a strong wind blew the fire in every direction. The fire blazed on for three days and destroyed 373 acres of the city, destroying around 32,000 homes, 84 churches, 44 company halls and left 1/6th of London's population homeless.
