As The Globe Burns

"On this day in 1613, The Globe playhouse, of which Shakespeare was part-owner, burned down. The fire started during a performance of Shakespeare's Henry the Eighth (also called All This is True) when sparks from a cannon set off to announce the King's entrance in Act I ignited the thatched roof, destroying the building in an hour."
