"It was in the forenoon of September 14, 1879, that the epochal fire in the history of Hastings broke forth and gave the Hastings fire department its first severe test. The fire was discovered in the drug store of J. S. Allison, which was located in a building on the west side of Hastings Avenue, south of the alley running through the block from Hastings Avenue to Lincoln Avenue. The fire engine was brought out and worked first from the cistern at the intersection of Hastings Avenue and Second Street, and then from the cistern at the intersection of the same street with Lincoln Avenue. In the basement of the drug store, which was a frame structure, paints and oils were stored, and these inflammables soon caused the fire to reach formidable strength. Just when it seemed that the firemen had the flames under control, the engine broke. After this the citizens and firemen were compelled to fight with bucket brigades. They were unable to check the flames, and the main business section was wiped out. "
