This fire started at 222 West Main Street, Monongahela Pa. (where Voccelli’s Pizza is located) around 5 a.m Sept. 6, 2009. The fire spread to an adjoining building occupied by Hufnagel Computers. The building occupied by “The Bees Nest” sustained heavy damage when weight from water used to combat the fire caused the roof to collapse. I spoke to a man who lived on the second floor of 222 W. Main and he said that he heard two explosions before the fire started. Two firefighters were also injured in the blaze.
The building at 222 W. Main was one of my favorite buildings in this old part of town although it has been in poor condition for some time. Click here to see my other pictures of the fire.
I have other pictures taken later in the afternoon. Will post them here later tonight or tomorrow.
