Boston history is the history of stuff burning down. Schorow's book weaves numerous compelling tales of fire through the ages, and Boston's unique role in firefighting and fire prevention. The Cocoanut Grove fire is well-documented here, an important reminder for all of the need for awareness and personal responsibility for fire safety.
