[The Damron Hotel Fire, 16 of 21: Black Smoke Billowing Over Businesses]

Description:

Shown here is another view of the huge column of black smoke accompanying the Damron Hotel fire that completely destroyed the hotel on December 22, 1975.
It was located at 109 W. Hubbard Street, and the spectacular fire that destroyed it received extensive photographic coverage. Ammunition (Presumably from the hardware store next to the hotel) explosions could be heard all downtown. Even though they provided a hazard to fire fighters, no major injuries were reported.
