Additional Details:
The Great Fire, April 18 to 21. In April, 1906, following a severe seismic disturbance, almost the entire business section of the city, covering four square miles, was destroyed by fire. Broken water mines made it impossible to stop the awful onrush of flames. No greater calamity has ever occurred in the history of man, but it brought out the best in mankind.
