Sanford After Great Fire of 1887
Sanford After Great Fire
Sanford, Florida after the Great Fire of 1887. On September 27, 1887, "The Big Fire" burned and damaged the majority of the east side of Sanford. The fire began at Altree's Bakery on First Street and quickly spread through the wooden buildings in the city. The Sanford Fire Department helped extinguish the fire. Buildings such as the Sanford House Hotel were spared by placing wet blankets on the roof. Many of those buildings that were destroyed in the fire were immediately rebuilt using brick.
