The Great Baltimore Fire, Audio Book
This is the 4-CD audio book. Click here for the paperback copy.
Early on Sunday, February 7, 1904, a passerby noticed smoke coming from the John E. Hurst & Co. building. Within hours, steady, frigid winds had created a blaze that overwhelmed Baltimore's firefighters and threatened the entire city. Although few died as a result of the flames, the heart of the city, its waterfront and business district -- lay in ashes. The story of Baltimore's trial by fire and ultimate resurgence is freshly presented for the first time in fifty years.
