This is a list of historic disastrous fires. Urban fires are the most numerous due to loss of life and property, but also included are lists of fires in individual structures, ships and other transportation, and mines. A few of the most important wildfires or forest fires are included, but this list is not the primary resource for the most severe wildfires, which is summarized in the List of forest fires.

Not in history has a modern imperial city been so completely destroyed. San Francisco is gone.

On the right, a white stone bridge arches over a wide river. On the far side and to the left, a gabled building is outlined in front of huge flames rising up to the night sky; they are reflected in the water and illuminate part of the bridge and a building with two towers in the background. There are several boats full of people in the river, and large crowds are assembled on the near bank and on the bridge.
