Howard Building, October 3, 1984

Gary Knight / CCBI Photograph

Blamed on a burning match in a cardboard box, a stubborn six-hour fire gutted the turn-of-the-century Howard Building at 112 E. Lane Street. Nearly 100 firefighters, working in shifts of 40, battled the 4:15 p.m. blaze. Volunteers from the Six Forks Fire Department assisted with refilling air tanks as more than 100 tanks were depleted by the end of the evening. This photograph looks east down Lane Street from McDowell Street.
