1980 Double Fires on Sumner Lane

80 0716 02
July 16, 1980

Mayor Frank Radford, Gene Hester, and Elvin Young at one of two fire calls that morning to Sumner Lane. The fire department put it out, but a few hours later it was burning again. The second time they concentrated on protecting neighboring houses. A few days earlier the house two doors from this one burned down.

Others that week: Activity at TPS, an Osage orange, City Hall, Courthouse, and Wesley Crowe (without his mustache) presented award to Alphonso Pierce for evidence leading to a shoplifting arrest. It happened at Bill's Dollar Store, so Manager Ruth Ann Cullens was pictured, too.
