That fire is fairly well documented in a variety of
places that can be found through using any web search
"In 1875, a fire that threatened the whole downtown
was fought by bucket brigade, but all of the buildings
on the east side were destroyed. Soon after (1877-79),
these buildings, and most of the remaining frame
structures in the downtown area were replaced with
brick structures that remain today."
