Join Vancouver author Lisa Anne Smith as she brings to life stories from her newly-released book Vancouver Is Ashes: The Great Fire of 1886. Re-visit the Great Vancouver Fire of June 13th, 1886 through digitized vintage photos and recollections of survivors. Discover how an out-of-control clearing fire reduced Vancouver to ashes in less than one hour — and galvanized a remarkable recovery in the days and weeks following. See photos of before and after the fire, and find out how much we have learned since 1886 in the field of fire management.
