Calling all fire adjusters!

Tombstone Fire

The outhouse beind the Tivoli Gardens on Allen Street was the starting point for Tombstone’s second major fire in March of 1882. Within an hour, the flames jumped across Allen Street, consuming the businesses on the north side of the street, including Campbell and Hatch’s billiard parlor, the Alhambra, Occidental Saloon and the Cosmopolitan Hotel. Tombstone diarist George Parsons wrote that the fire was “a good $350,000 fire with about $250,000 insurance,” adding cryptically: “Town full of adjusters.”
