A sad day in our town:
An entire block in our historic downtown went up in flames this morning, destroying at least 5 buildings and 7 business including the only fabric shop and our neighbors' floral shop. We could see the fire from our office all day - it was really sad knowing we couldn't do anything to help. Here is a video of the fire
In case the video doesn't work from the blog, here is a link to the site:
And here are some photos my friend Nina took.
And one from the local paper when the fires first started:
And in case you are wondering what it looked like before, here is a photo I took exactly a year ago when we came to Miles City for the first time to find a place to live. Everything on the left side of the frame is gone from the red sign in the distance to the Big Sky Pharmacy sign.
