The Great Fire

Local history can be really interesting. We walk streets every day without always thinking of who’s come before or what forces shaped them. Here’s a page on the Great Fire of Spokane which is all new to me despite being raised near the city. What I found interesting was that there were also downtown fires in Seattle and Ellensberg the same year, possibly preventing the latter from being our capital. Any links for interesting historical events in your neck of the woods?
