Description

Fire at the Thomasville Road Baptist Church in Tallahassee, Florida, view from front left. The church was located at the northwest corner of Thomasville Road and Betton Road. The building was later sold when the Betton Place development started, and it became the Haystack (a women's apparel store). Later (1993) it houses the Planned Furnishings and the Chrysalis Decorative Fabrics stores.

Accompanying note: "PRE-DAWN BLAZE - Flames leaped high into the air and smoke blanketed the northeast section of the city this morning when a fire broke out at Thomasville Road Baptist Church. Half of the church auditorium roof, right, fell in, but the Sunday School Annex, left, suffered only smoke and water damage. A gas heater in the auditorium attic was believed to have caused the fire. Tenative loss was estimated at $50,000."
