The Fire of the Eighteenth Century was a fire caused from the battle and fighting of the Red King's children in the 1700s. The fire destroyed every part of the city except Cathedral Close and Piminy Street, which became the oldest parts of the city. Piminy Street survived because of the magicians and witches who lived there. Together, they created a force to stop the fire. At this time, the Bloor family made a grand mansion near the ruins of the Red King's castle and they named it "Bloor House" before changing it to a school for endowed children called Bloor's Academy.
