The Great Fire of London was a major conflagration that swept
through the central parts of
London from Sunday, 2 September
to Thursday, 6 September 1666. The fire gutted the medieval
City of London inside the old Roman city wall. The death toll is
generally thought to have been relatively small, although some
historians have challenged this belief.

The fire started in a bakery shortly after midnight on Sunday, 2 September, and spread rapidly.

HISTORY WAS MADE ON THIS DAY IN 1967

Apollo 1 explosion kills all three crew members in 1967 - New York Daily  News

A launch pad fire during Apollo program tests at Cape Canaveral,
Florida, killed astronauts Virgil “Gus” Grissom, Edward H. White
II, and Roger B. Chaffee. An investigation indicated that a faulty
electrical wire inside the Apollo 1 command module was the
probable cause of the fire. The astronauts, the first Americans
to die in a spacecraft, had been participating in a simulation of
the Apollo 1 launch scheduled for the following month.

MAYFIELD, Ky. (AP) — Residents of a Kentucky town devastated
by a tornado could be without heat, water and electricity in chilly temperatures for a "long time," the mayor warned Monday, as
officials struggled to restore services after a swarm of twisters
leveled neighborhoods and killed dozens of people in five states.
