The details of last night’s fire on Whiskey Row are beginning to materialize.
Prescott Fire’s Jeff Knotek described the situation.
“Even in the few minutes it took the Fire Department units to get here, the fire had spread rapidly," said Knotek. "Fortunately there were no injuries to patrons, bystanders or fire fighters.”
Knotek continued to say that things could have been much worse. It could have looked like the Great Fire of 1900.
“We could have had a repeat of what happened 100 years ago and been bulldozing the entire block," he said.
