I think this is the first time I've not seen the Great Fire mentioned...the anniversary date was last Friday, May 3, 2013 - 112 years after it occurred, which was also on a Friday.  I usually drive over to where it began and offer prayers for those who were so affected, and give thanks for those who came to reconstruct our City.  As it was a little wet last weekend, however, I didn't venture out this year.
