ALAMOSA DEPOT - 1907
On Christmas Day 1907, fire destroyed the Rio Grande rail depot at Alamosa, Colorado, the Salida Mail reported. The fire made significant headway before the alarm was sounded. Flames were "so fierce that the local fire department was entirely unable to make successful combat," the newspaper said.
