It's amazing the photos you find when you review your photo files. I took this photo back in February and then promptly forgot all about it. This is a little corner shopping center that was located just a few blocks from my old house. I don't think I ever went in any of the stores but I certainly passed it every day. I happened to be in that neighborhood on this day in February when I spotted all this damage. I stopped to take a few pictures and spoke some people there and learned that it burned down the night before I was there. That's why there is still water on the ground. A day or two later, I heard a story on the radio about the city losing one of it's very few remaining video stores in this center. I always wondered if that store had any business and according to the radio story, it had quite a lot of business.
