HISTORIC FIRES

2: Cassius Dio reports that during the Great Fire of Rome this emperor was singing “The Sack of Ilium,” but Tacitus says he was in Antium.

4: This city's Great Fire of 1666 started in a bakery on Pudding Lane.

8: During the War of 1812, this city in upstate New York was invaded by British forces from Canada and burned.

6: In September of 1812, in the aftermath of the Battle of Borodino, residents of this city burned most of it to the ground to deny Napoleon use of the buildings.

10: In 2002, an explosion in an armory started a fire that destroyed half of this second-largest city in Africa.

JUICY FRUIT

3: The Quebec Bell variety of this fruit in the rose family is similar in taste and quality to the Delicious and the Northern Spy.

6: Enoch Bartlett of Massachusetts named a variety of this fruit after himself, not knowing it had already been named after an English nurseryman named Williams.

9: Nectarines have the recessive version of the gene that causes this feature in dominant-gene-carrying peaches.

12: Also called the date plum, the genus name of this tree that produces a red-orange fruit and whose wood is used to make billiard cues literally means “wheat of the gods.”

15: In Brazilian cuisine, a Romeo and Juliet is this 5-letter yellow or red tropical fruit related to the pomegranate covered by a piece of cheese.

I listed my 6- and 8-point Historic Fires responses in the wrong order and misnumbered them, too. I think.
