CARTER FIRE - 2013

On Feb. 10, 2013, a three-alarm fire destroyed the Carter Jewelers Co. building at Fountain Avenue and Main Street, Springfield, Ohio. 

The vacant structure collapsed during the blaze. There were no serious injuries.

Coincidentally, the intersection of Main and Fountain was the site of the Black Opera House fire on Feb. 19, 1903.

That blaze destroyed several adjacent structures, including a jewelry store owned by J.H. Mulholland, who was killed trying to salvage goods from his business.
