The horror and hardship of the great Minnesota fires of 1918 are hard to imagine 100-years later. Words alone cannot describe the sheer terror and confusion created by flames that killed nearly 500 in northeastern Minnesota, forcing more than 50-thousand people from their homes. Ten communities were destroyed and dozens more were damaged in an inferno that covered a 1,800-square mile area.
