baltimoresun The #Baltimore Fire of 1904 started at 10:50 a.m. and raged on until 5 p.m. the next day. Mayor Robert McLane issued a statement in the Baltimore News: "To suppose the spirit of our people will not rise to the occasion is to suppose that our people are not genuine Americans. We shall make the fire of 1904 a landmark not of decline but of progress." Two years later, the Baltimore Sun reported that the city had risen from the ashes and "One of the great disasters of modern time had been converted into a blessing." 3y

About 1,231 firefighters were required to bring the blaze under control.

baltimoresun The fire began at 10:50 a.m. in the John #Hurst and Company building, that caused an explosion sending flames onto adjacent buildings. According to The #Evening Star, the city was deprived of the services of its most experienced #firefighter, after a live trolley wire fell on Chief Engineer Horton "knocking him senseless." He was carried to his home and placed in bed, leaving #District Chief Emerich in command. #Baltimore 3y
