19th century 1862 1857 - 1864 1857 1857 1864 1864 1858 1857 Prague's Reference Plan of the 1840s, MMP 1857. Fire of Kobler's Cardboard Factory in Smíchov. On 20 March 1857, stoves in the Kobler's cardboard factory got overheated which resulted in a fire. Although it was spotted fairly late, the joint efforts of fire-fighters who had arrived from Smíchov, Malá Strana and other places succeeded in putting the fire out within an hour. 1857. Fire of the House of L. G. Bondy in Dlouhá Street. On 15 June 1857, at 2 o'clock in the afternoon, a fire started at the house of factory owner L. G. Bondy in number 741. – 1. of Dlouhá Street. Under the command of Mr. Lammer, 14 novices, who had been practising for 1 month only, with two manually towed fire engines rushed to the site of the fire. There, people were engaged in carrying out furniture which they were doing with such thoroughness that even a piano was thrown out of the window. The commander wanted to get a portable fire engine upstairs but it proved impossible since the fire had been noticed too late and had already spread considerably. Several fire engines from Prague as well as other vehicles took part in the fire-fighting operation. 1857. Fire of the Print Works of Mr. Domitzr in Holešovice. On 20 February 1857 shortly after midday, a fire started in Holešovice. It originated in the middle of the factory where printing machines were situated and it seems that overheating of the stoves was the cause. The fire kept rapidly spreading and increasing in volume but due to thick fog hovering above Prague, it was not detected for some time. The fire-fighting efforts were under way till late in the night. The damage was substantial because the printing machinery had been destroyed by the fire. 1858. Fire of Šerlinské Mills On 25 December 1857, firemen were notified that there was a fire in Smíchov. Guards were sent to help and they found out that Šerlinské Mills close to Žofín were on fire. There, it became clear that saving the mills was out of the question and so commander Lammer decided to focus only on the neighbouring buildings. He had the roofs of those buildings torn down and his men then went inside and they managed to confine the fire to the mills. 1862. Fire of Belmann's Paper Mill in Bubeneč. On 29 September 1862, at 3 o'clock in the afternoon, a fire flared up at Bellmann's paper mill situated in the Emperor's Mill in Bubeneč and turned the whole factory into ashes within a couple of hours. The cause of the fire is not known. The damages incurred amounted to some 40,000 golden coins. 1864. Fire of K. Behr's in the Horse Market. On 18 February 1864 at 11 pm, a big fire started at K. Behr's gilding factory in the Horse Market. It probably began in the yard in the boiler room or close to it. The fire-fighters were very brave and several men got burns. One fire engine was damaged, too. 1864. Fire of Kassowitz's Warehouse of Glass Goods. On 21 February 1864, at 11 pm, a fire started in the warehouse of Mr. Kassowitz's glass factory and it produced such smoke that tenants were hurriedly leaving their homes. In the panic that followed, two children were left in one apartment but they were saved by firemen. The fire was confined to the warehouse.
