Mary Berry in London, England - 21 January, 1809, at night
from Diary of Mary Berry, 21 January 1809, page 375:
I was awoke by the drum announcing a fire in our neighbourhood. Notwithstanding cold and illness, I could not resist going to the window, where I saw that the fire was neither very large nor very near. I heard in the morning it was St. James’s Palace, the side which looks upon the park.
