Long Description:
Center of
PHOENIX FIRE
September 23, 1916

The blaze was started by sparks from a
generator in the Sinclair Chair Factory
on the industrial "island" between the Oswego
River and Oswego Canal. It soon spread to
the Duffy Silk Mill where the pumps for the
water system were located. Strong winds swept
embers across the canal to the downtown area
destroying 80 buildings from the river to
Main St., and from Lock St. to Culvert St. -
2/3 of the valuation. Downtown rebuilt 1918.
