    Did you know that,

    128 years ago, marks the beginning of the Great Fire of Seattle. Seattle was at that time thriving on local lumber business and most of the buildings were made of wood. The fire started in a lumber mill and quickly became out of control. It ended up destroying 25 blocks of buildings completely, which covered all of downtown Seattle. The damage was estimated at 20 Mil's at the time, which is the equivalent of about 533 Mil's of today's money. Approximately 1 million rodent died in the fire, doing a damn good job at cleaning the city.

    History, needs never be forgotten!
