    Default Was the Great Fire of London started deliberately?

    Was the Great Fire of London 1666 started deliberately to wipe out the plague ? Had a man / woman realised it was the rats ? Most people in these times would have laughed at the idea but if the man / woman had made alliances in their supposition maybe people were placed at strategic points to keep the fire burning. Not many people died in the Great Fire of London compared to how many would have died of plague.

    It was the aliens, man. I tell you.

    Mightier than the tread of marching armies is the power of an idea whose time has come

    Not really that's why there are ??? in the thread starter. It's just a muse. It cannot be proved either way.

    The logic that burning London to save it from the plague is fundamentally flawed, do you think the rats would sit indoors and burn? They would scatter and scatter the plague with it.

    It is historical fact that the Great Fire of London wiped out the plague that was rampant at the time. How it started? Plague wiped out of London, Fact. London rebuilt.

    London was built of highly flammable materials back in the day and I think there were a number of pretty big fires which wiped out large sections, although there was one "Great Fire". I don't think the evidence suggests it was deliberate.

    Yes your right it was mainly constructed of timber. If there was any intelligence behind the plan it wouldn't look deliberate and forensic science didn't exist in 1666. It's just a muse but thank you for your informative answer
