Jacksonville in Flames

Caption reads:
The fire at 2:55 p.m. Siestas abandoned.

From Acres of Ashes: "A thick pall of smoke covered half the city. As far as Bridge street a river of flame swept up from the west and north. The firemen stopped there and fought grimly but despairingly. Then the fiery shower fell again behind them."
