Fire fighting at the 1900 Summer Olympics

Fire fighting at the 1900 Summer Olympics

Fire fighting was an unofficial event at the 1900 Summer Olympics in Paris, France. Competitions were held for both professional and volunteer firefighters.

Like the other unofficial events competed at the 1900 Games, the fire fighting event was considered part of the 1900 World's Fair, and is not considered by the International Olympic Committee as an Olympic event. However, the American report of the 1900 Games, prepared by AG Spalding, devotes a whole page to the competition, which was won by Kansas City and "its famous engine and hook and ladder company No.1"'
