Synopsis: Fires and firefighting in Boston from the seventeenth century to the present. Includes the Great Fire of 1872, the Cocoanut Grove fire, the Vendome fire, and others.

From the Inside Flap: FIRES HAVE SHAPED BOSTON SINCE its founding on a narrow peninsula in 1630. Innovations by Bostonians have led to improvements in firefighting and fire prevention across the land. In the first comprehensive history of Boston’s major fires, Stephanie Schorow tells the dramatic tales of seventeenth-century fires (which were viewed as signs of God’s wrath), the 1834 Ursuline convent fire, the Great Fire of 1872, the Chelsea conflagrations of 1908 and 1973, the tragic Cocoanut Grove nightclub fire of 1942, the Vendome Hotel collapse that killed nine firefighters in 1972, and an arson ring that terrorized the city in the early 1980s. Chapters are also devoted to two key Boston innovations: the Hunneman fire engine and the citywide fire alarm system (first in the nation) developed by William Francis Channing and Moses Farmer. You’ve heard of the Freedom Trail. Discover Boston’s Fire Trail!
