UK: London's Burning! - Great Fire of 1666 commemorated on 350th anniversary

Hundreds of people gathered on the banks of the River Thames in London, Sunday, to watch a 120-metre long (393 foot) wooden sculpture of 17th century London burn in flames to mark the 350th anniversary of the Great Fire of London.
The sculpture of the city was set alight on the Thames between Waterloo bridge and Blackfriars bridge as part of the London's Burning festival, held from 30 August to 4 September, to commemorate the Great Fire of London. The event included a series of art installations, performances and tours.
The story of the blaze, which destroyed most of the capital in 1666, was retold by American artist David Best, famous for his wooden immense temples, and creativity agency Artichoke which specialises on large-scale shows and installations.
The Great Fire of London began on September 2, 1666, and raged for four days. More than 13,000 buildings, including the old St Paul's Cathedral, were destroyed in the flames.
