Close-up view of refugees fleeing along Grove Street from the Ham & Egg fire. This fire started in a house on the south side of Hayes Street when a woman started a fire in her stove to make breakfast around 9 AM. The chimney was defective due to the quake and fire broke out.

The fire caused the destruction of the Mission district as well as the Hayes Valley section, including the Mechanics' Pavilion and the City Hall. The earthquake hit at 5:12:05 AM, measuring 8.25 on the...

GROUND EFFECTS AND BUILDING DAMAGE On the east side of Howard Street near 17th Street in San Francisco all houses shifted toward the left.
