Last night, (Jan 5/11) while the snow continued blowing, many of us slept,
and another Heritage Building went up in flames.
The Kerr Building (built in 1911) was home to a lot of people.
Fortunately it seems everyone got out safely.
However, their modest belongings are gone, and so are their homes.
***UPDATE- June 08, 2011: The Nelson Post- The wall comes down.***
The charred remains of a rocking horse and a pillow...
I walked up there on my lunch break, following the smell of smoke, and took these pictures.
