Lutheran Church Fire - March 17, 1918

 
Reader Melissa Jaarsma sent in this rare shot of the Lutheran Church Fire in downtown Johnstown on this date - March 17, 1918. I had an old newspaper clipping on this fire - that I can't find. She found this matted picture in a box of old family photographs.
What's so cool about this shot - is this crumpled up fire truck.
I found this shot of the fire - in my archive - note on the lower right - one of the many fire trucks that helped fight the blaze and explosion.
