An excavator tears down buildings late Wednesday, Sept. 4, 2013, that were earlier gutted by fire. The fire was reported about 10 a.m. and the three attached structures — which housed several businesses and residential units — were destroyed as a result of the fire. There were no injuries. The fire caused heavy smoke and road closures in the downtown area for much of the day.

    In 1969 our famiy lived on the 2 upper floors of the house on the left. On the ground floor lived the Druken family with children Derek and Randy. I was 10 at the time. Derek was a year or so younger. To this day I still have in my possession a black and white photo of the both of us that we snapped at the long-gone Woolworths dept store photo booth. A lot of memories went up in smoke when that house burnt down yesterday. 1 of many things I especially remember is walking home at lunch time from Parkins Academy on Bond Street, and rushing in to turn on the tv to watch the mid-day movie that was on. I can even remember Frank Cody, the landlord, with his usual visits. "Those were the days my friend"
