TitleWreckage of the Bloomington Fire
Coverage / Year1900
DescriptionThe damaged Bloomington skyline is visible beyond the courthouse square. A streetcar and a crowd of people are visible in the foreground. June 19, 1900, much of the center of Bloomington was destroyed by a fire that started in the Model Laundry. Flames spread rapidly and destroyed many buildings in a four square block area of the city. No businesses failed because of the fire, and most of the rebuilding was completed within one year.
