How long did the fire last?

By Wednesday 5th September 1666 the wind had died down and the fire stopped spreading.
The fire lasted for 4 days

The fire spread quickly over 4 days because the houses and buildings were made of the flammable material wood and tar and they were built very close together (congested).
