Description

Hook and Ladder Company #1 and Hose Company #1 parading along Sanford Avenue on January 1, 1884. The building pictured behind the companies is believed to be Sanford Fire Department, the city's first fire station. On September 20, 1887, the Great Fire of 1887 broke out and burned for two days, due to the city's lack of adequate fire equipment. The fire destroyed a significant portion of the business district and the City of Sanford responded by increasing its fire protection measures, improving water pressure, and constructing numerous fire hydrants.
