guts block in downtown Sidell
From April 26, 2007 edition
For the fifth time in history Sidell has lost a downtown
block of buildings to fire.
It took 17 fire departments working seven hours
to knock down a fire that all but destroyed half a city block
in Sidell Tuesday. Two businesses located in three of the five
buildings were Gray Street Salon and Callahan’s Appliance
store. Two other buildings were vacant.
