#TodayInHistory: The Great London Fire

Yvonne Williams

A brief look at the highlights this day September 2:

1666 – The Great Fire of London broke out. The fire burned for three days destroying 10,000 buildings including St. Paul’s Cathedral. Only 6 people were killed.

1996 – Muslim rebels and the Philippine government signed a pact formally ending 26-years of insurgency that had killed more than 120,000 people.

1969 – Star Trek. The original Star Trek airs its final episode after running for only three years and never placed better than No. 52 in the ratings. But did become a cult classic spawning movies and other series based on the series.
