Incendiary bombs were designed to start fires. They were usually dropped in tandem with high-explosive bombs. During the London Blitz (7 September 1940-May 1941) thousands of incendiary devices caused widespread damage to the docks and industrial centres of the capital. The fires they caused also destroyed thousands of houses.
