Sprouse-Rietz Variety Store Fire
May 3, 1959
Smoke pours out of the front door and windows of the Sprouse-Reitz Variety Store. Two ladders are propped up against the store front. Two fire fighters spray water from a hose directly into the store, while two fire fighters walk on the sidewalk outside the fire. Tillman Hardware Store is directly to the right of the fire.
