    Loving this site.
    Reading it for a while, does it seem to anyone else that Durham has had an iordinant number of fires over the years? Things seem to burn down really often here.
    Seems if they don't burn, too many are torn down anyway.

    "does it seem to anyone else that Durham has had an iordinant number of fires over the years? Things seem to burn down really often here."

    Agreed. It's getting to be predictable. Even brick stuff that
    isn't supposed to burn.

    or houses that are vacant, have no squatters, no electrical running to the house mysteriously burning down in the middle of the night days after the fire department refuses to burn them as tests.

2019 Angier, 1980

2019 Angier appears to have been built in the 1940s as a "Jr Order of United American Mechanics Hall - Green Fred Council." This union had previously been located at 459 1/2 South Driver Street. It remained as such through the 1960s. By 1980, it was a florist shop, and by the 1990s, it was a shoe store. Then, it burned.

It had remained a vacant lot since then.
