Pendleton Fire - 8/28/99
copyright 1999 Patricia A. Neal

5:45 A.M. 8/28/99
From my house on SW hill overlooking town.
Smoke rising from the fire.

6:30 A.M. 8/28/99
Building in center was historic Raley House,
used as a restaurant. Destroyed.

This building housed Robert Ridgway, Attorney At Law;
Court Reporter; D.D. Potter, Saddlemaker; Dave's OffRoad
(motorcycles, etc.) and storage.

While most of the fire had been contained,
the far right hand side of the building seemed to
be the toughest to bring down.

This is about all that was saved from
D.D. Potter Saddlery.
