AbstractThe situation in Ottawa and Hull prior to the great fire of 1900 provided many conditions that could be conducive to a conflagration such as contiguity of frame buildings, prevalence of wood shingle roofs, lack of spatial or structural fire breaks, inadequate water supply system and fire equipment, and a strong wind. This paper discusses the development of this fire and its subsequent damage.
