Interactive Metz Fire Map

View Metz Fire in a larger map

With the 102nd anniversary of the Metz Fire coming up on October 15, I decided to create a Google Map for those interested in the subject.  The map paints a picture of the events of that day and the widespread destruction caused by the fire.  Included are the site of the train car disaster, the depot, homes of those killed in the fire, cemeteries where victims are buried, and more.  Photos are included where available and relevant.

To use the map, find the area you're interested in and zoom in, or just click one of the icons. Information, and a picture if available, will pop up for that site, like this.

If you have something to add to the map, or a correction, please let me know and I'll be glad to include your suggestions!
