The big fire downtown

Were we surprised when we pulled into town as a parade and bands were playing. We knew it was the Ontonogan Days and it was Labor Day Weekend and our anniversary, but little did we know about the big fire that broke out at 5:00 in the morning. Five downtown buildings were burned to the ground. How sad. The town still went on with the festivities as the firefighters were battling the blaze. The fire even made front page news in our paper the Daily Mining Gazette on Monday.
