How fires can change a streetscape

Tri-County Vanguard - - EXTRAS -

Fire in a down­town is never good. The streetscape of Yar­mouth was re­shaped by a mas­sive fire on Nov. 6, 1963 when fire broke out at the rear of the Mar­go­lian’s store. By the time the fire was brought un­der con­trol on Main and Brown streets, eight busi­nesses had been de­stroyed, three oth­ers were dam­aged, 33 peo­ple were left un­em­ployed and some peo­ple were left home­less.
