In the middle of November 2019, we did a podcast on historic hotel fires.
We talked about the life ending fires at the Kerns and Wenonah hotels in December 1934 and 1977, respectively.
During the podcast, I questioned whether the Grand River was frozen over and the video below shows ice chunks and flowing water during the Kerns fire.
I read articles to find information on the terrible fires. The old time video below brings a whole new prospective.
