A perfect storm of circumstances started a fire at a residence in 1911 Baltimore.
“A candle, loose wall paper and a breeze blowing in the open window of the kitchen at 129 South Caroline street” started a “slight blaze” in Louis Ginsman’s home, according to a Baltimore Sun article with the headline “Candle, Breeze, Blaze.”
Firefighters quickly dispatched to the scene and put it out; the fire only caused minor damage.
