RHGS Program: Thumb Fires with Alan Naldrett
Tuesday, September 17 @ 6:00 PM
It is unimaginable to picture whole counties burning, but that was the case in 1871, and then remarkably, ten years later again in 1881! The whole Michigan Thumb suffered two disastrous fires, mostly due to the combination of fuel in the form of tree leaves, stumps, branches left by the lumber industry, a drought, and hot weather and wind. The Thumb Fire of 1881 brought the American Red Cross to the first major disaster they went to. In the days when a bucket brigade was often a town’s only defense against a fire, the great Thumb fires taught many communities that they needed to form fire departments and practice fire prevention.
