Is this info correct?

The lighthouse of Alexandria was a tower built in the 3rd century BC. It was bulit on the island of Pharos in Alexandria, Egypt. It was originally built as the port’s landmark. Later it was made a lighthouse. For many centuries it was the tallest man-made structures, and was named one of the Seven Wonders of the World by Antipater of Sidon. Pharos was an island of the coast of Alexandria. They decided to use this island because the coast of Egypt is flat and doesn’t have the kind of landmark used at the time for navigation. Instead of a light, the lighthouse of Alexandria uses a fire, and the fire reflects onto mirrors at the top.

is this information correct? because i got it from wikipedia, and i know some information isn't correct, because people can edit it themselves.
