Caption: "Enid firemen battle this fire at the Los Pimientos apartments more than five hours Tuesday night and Wednesday only three walls of the two story 10 apartment building were standing. Loss in the fire which started about 5 PM was estimated at more than $125,000 by Mr. M. G. Peppers, Oklahoma City oil man, who sold it to Dr. Paul Champlin in 1942. A short circuit in a basement wire apparently touched off the blaze, fireman said. It was Enid's second major fire in one week."
