Huge recreation of Great Fire of London set ablaze on the Thames

The 120-metre wooden structure of 17th century London was set alight on the river Thames  to commemorate the 350th anniversary of the Great Fire of London.

 

Shown went live on National TV at 8.30pm.

 

The large wooden model of the 17th century London skyline, titled London 1666, has been designed by American "burn" artist David Best.

 

It began on September 2 1666 at a baker’s shop in Pudding Lane and raged for four days.
