On the 5th of September 1666, The Great Fire of London swept through the city's center, destroying most of the buildings inside the old medieval walls. In all, the fire consumed 13,200 houses, 87 parish churches, St. Paul's Cathedral, and most government buildings. It is estimated to have destroyed the homes of 70,000 of London's 80,000 inhabitants.
