1405: Der Brand von Bern
A strong draught and a spark were all it took. In the afternoon of 14 May 1405 a fire started in the Brunngasse in Bern who's cause is a mystery to this day. The fire spread rapidly. The following morning over 600 houses lay in ruins and more than 100 people had died in the inferno. The people of Bern were warned. A fire in the Junkerngasse destroyed 52 houses on 28 April 1405, a bad omen predicting further suffering, according to the reports in the chronicles of the city of Bern, written by city clerk Konrad Justinger.
