Fire in Hull - Apr 26, 1900
A fire engulfed much of Hull, Québec and the Chaudière district in Ottawa. Started in a chimney in Hull, winds quickly spread the fire. It crossed the wooden bridge over the Chaudière Falls to Ottawa, sending the H.F. Bronson and J.R. Booth sawmills up in flames. Approximately 2,000 homes were destroyed, seven were killed and the majority of the mills were gone by the time the fire was put out.
