Fireworks: 1666

Above twelve thousand houses were burnt down, with the greatest part of the furniture and merchandise that was in them. All means used to stop it proved ineffectual; though the blowing up of houses was the most effectual of any.
--From History of his own Times--

Sometimes you fight fire with fire, sometimes you fight fire with explosives.

Hey that was a title of one of Baches favorite tunes when he was in his garage band in high school, the Conversing Craniums. He called it Blowing up the House.
