Fairview house fire, not a total loss.

Fairview house fire, not a total loss.

This house had a little fire just the other day.  It could be rebuilt but I’d be surprised if it is.  It has no foundation, rather more usual than not the year it was built [1947].  There was an acute housing crisis in Anchorage then, right after WWII and new subdivisions in then outlying areas were being developed as quickly as possible. 

I salute you, little green house!  Thank you for 62 years of keeping people dry and warm and happy.
