While preparing the midday meal in their wooden house in a crowded section of the city of Hull, a woman noticed that a faulty chimney had set the roof on fire. The family couldn't control the fire and by the time the fire brigade had arrived the fire had already spread to the adjacent shanties and was soon out of control. From this small beginning started a fire which destroyed large sections of both Hull and Ottawa during the 26 and 27 April 1900. Despite making 15,000 people homeless and destroying the major part of the industry in both cities the miracle was that only 7 people were killed.

As early as 27th of April, before the fire had even been fully doused, preparations were underway to care for the homeless and to help them rebuild their lives. This book provides the record of the Ottawa & Hull Fire Relief Fund which was founded on that second day to manage the collection and distribution of aid both in cash donations and in food, clothing and materials.
