A 911 Call From The Old Capitol Grill Fire in Colorado

I was sitting in my office in the American Mountaineering Center when I heard sirens and fire engines racing down the street. I glanced out the window to see the entire town of Golden engulfed in flames. I rushed outside, camera in hand, and hurried to the old downtown area.

Looking down Washington Street, I saw the tragedy in progress: The Old Capitol Grill was afire. Flames shot through the roof as black smoke billowed through town. Firemen scurried to douse the flames and save the building.

Thanks to their efforts, the building - and a piece of Colorado history - was saved. Built in 1863, the Capitol Grill building served as the Territorial Capitol for Colorado until statehood was declared and the capitol was moved to Denver.
