I found this article by accident– half the time you look for something and you don’t find it–or–find half the article. This article is quite the treasure for me personally. The photos are not that clear, but it is still a precise record of what happened.

What is most interesting is the map of what buildings burnt in the Carleton Place fire of 1910. We now know that it definitely began in the old Comrie building where Cameron’s Butcher Shop was, and, who was exactly affected by this devastating fire.
