Very well written! I was completely captivated. The single lines about the devil's breath gave your story bursts of momentum. A fascinating & engrossing read.
Wow, you captured a piece of history, shared it, gave all the facts, while still maintaining your reader's attention. That's good.
Excellent work describing the devastation of fire and how quickly it spreads. This was an engrossing read!

Oh wow. Excellent entry. This sort of blew me away because my Dad grew up in them there Porcupine hills. I never knew about the 1911 fire.
The part about the bodies being 'fertilizer' was a bit too much said, in my opinion. :)
Thank you for sharing this marvelous bit of writing!
