Description:

Photograph taken during daylight of workmen using a crane to manage building wreckage after a fire. Caption: "Fire Chief Delbert McMurphy said Friday he would make at least one recommendation to make fighting fires like the one which caused an estimated $600,000 damage to Fairview's newest shopping mall, an easier task in the future. 'Build real good firewalls . . . put in less ceilings, and it wouldn't hurt to put in some more stairways,' McMurphy said."
