General Note: The great fire of 1908, which leveled 18 city blocks, destroyed dozens of factories, shops and homes, and led to an overhaul of the city's firefighting systems. (There was inadequate water pressure to put out the blaze early). Frightened residents huddled in the street next to piles of their possessions, firefighters dynamiting buildings in an (unsuccessful) attempt to stop the spread of the fire and a horse, engulfed in flames, escaped from its stall and running down the street shrieking in pain.
