A fire has destroyed the world's largest stove, a Michigan landmark standing at the Michigan state fairgrounds. Fire investigators believe lightning sparked the fire. The stove was a total loss. Built by the Michigan Stove Company, it was first displayed at the World's Fair in Chicago in 1893.

The oak stove weighed 15 tons and stood 25 feet high. Before the automotive boom, Detroit was home to five major stove-making companies, and was called the Stove Capital of the World.
