Fire in 1945 - South Side of Square: The building that is on fire has Turner Bros. on the front
window. The Burns City Lodge #600 used the 2nd floor for their meetings.
There is another grocery store to the west side which can be seen which was B & M Grocery. The
owners of that store were John Bundy and Cecil Masten.
The building was totally destroyed and another structure built on this same location that stands
today. Most of us will recall as previous occupants in this building to be Sloans Grocery, a
restaurant, Cornerstone Baptist Church, and currenty the Valley View City Hall.
