The great fire of july 29th 1916
Matheson, Ontario, Canada.

Il a près de 100 ans, les feux de forêt les plus meurtriers de l'histoire canadienne prenaient la vie de 223 personnes dans le nord de l'Ontario, un moment historique qui a servi de trame de fond au roman primé à l'international Il pleuvait des oiseaux, de l'auteure établie en Abitibi Jocelyne Saucier.

The great Matheson Fire was a deadly forest fire that passed through the region surrounding the communities of Black River-Matheson and Iroquois Falls, Ontario, Canada, on July 29, 1916. ... In all, the fires burned an area of approximately 2,000 square kilometres (490,000 acres).

When I searched for Matheson, Ontario on OpenStreetMap, I noticed the sign for a monument, near the bridge, near you position of capture. Was wondering, what they remember there ... the answer is golden on blue on granite. And terrible.
