Pingree Street, was at the height of the destruction. A fellow who lived on the south side of Pingree in 1967 described what happened-- a gas station on the corner of Linwood and Pingree "blew up". The blast threw flaming debris over several houses to the east. By the time the fire burned itself out all that was left were the steps and chimneys. In the photo on the lower left a TV crew is filming a story. By 2007 the area had been converted to Yates Park. Steps from one of the burned houses were used to create benches for ballplayers.
