      Hinckley, Minnesota. Towns sometimes learn the hard way to be careful about their claims to fame. Take the north woods burg of Hinckley. Before Sept. 1, , it was nicknamed "The Town Built of Wood." That's the day a forest fire flashed through town -- really, a firestorm, with "as much force as an atomic bomb," to quote a display at the town.   John Blair | Image Courtesy of the Hinckley Fire Museum. On Saturday, September 1, , John Wesley Blair showed up for work on The Limited No. 4 train. The porter was familiar with the mile route from Duluth to Saint Paul, where he lived with his wife Emma and their two pre-teen boys. Not much is known about John Blair prior to this. Imagine a force in nature more powerful than multiple atomic bombs--that was the Great Hinckley Fire of September 1, In only four hours, the fire incinerated over square miles of forest, killed at least settlers and an unknown number of forest-dwelling Native Americans, and destroyed six towns in a firestorm of flame.
