Urban Development; City Planning
"The problem of fire was very real to the early settlers of this country. For this reason, in 1626, it was decreed that thatched roofs on houses no longer would be allowed in the Plymouth Colony. Early New York, in 1648, stipulated that wooden chimenys no longer could be built on houses. These were early attempts at control over individuals by the community, in this case, for fire protection.
