Seth was the first Standard employee on the scene last night at downtown's fire because he just so happened to be on the way home from my house around 12:30 this morning. This was one of the pictures he took with his cell phone of the fire before the Charlie and James could get there with real cameras. The buildings that were destroyed were two of our most historical (and oldest) buildings; Locke's and King's.
This morning as we were driving to work they had a wrecking ball tearing down what was left of the buildings. It's very sad that we lost a little of our history but we can be thankful that no one was injured and that the people living in the area were safe.
Keep the folks who lost property in this fire in your prayers this week please.
