The fires of Istanbul, reaching back 300 thousand years ago, were unlike tragedies in the world. History gave the fires of Istanbul the name of dragon which surrounded the city. This dragon was not only seven-headed but also twenty seven-headed dragon spreading fire. At some times this dragon destroyed the half of Istanbul city and left thousands of people in wreckage.

 

 

Fire for Istanbul was a disaster. Fire was a terrible catastrophe devastating the city as well as natural disasters like earthquake and flood. This disaster, which sometimes put the beautiful city into wreckage, did not only harm the welfare and wealth of the citizens but at the same time damaged their ease and happiness. Almost all the people of Istanbul were not sure that the houses they had built would not turn into a pile of ash. It shouldn’t have been bet that a citizen who went to work in the morning would not find their house or street beaten by red flame waves and put into wreckage in a pile of stones and mud by these flames. For this reason if a citizen was to be far from his/her district or town, his/her heart was always beating with worries and the fear of fire almost invaded the whole city of Istanbul. The houses’ being made of wood and their lining so closely to each other on streets, the narrowness of the streets, and the lack of water and extinguishing agents resulted in the houses’ burning to the ground almost across the city. In spite of this, after the fire disaster, re-wooden building was permitted on the scene as well as it was not seen any harm that the roads and streets of the city were still in their existing state - in other words, narrow and tangled. The district or town newly established on that fire scene in ten or fifteen years was not much different from the previous one and underwent the same disaster and even it got exposed much more to that devastating event.
