LAKESIDE - 1911


On Nov. 14, 1911, flames fed by strong winds struck the White City amusement park at 
Lakeside
, Colorado, outside Denver, destroying the scenic railway and adjoining North Pole attraction.

Lakeside's volunteer firefighters were credited with saving the park.

The Denver Fire Dept. provided mutual aid, according to the Aspen Democrat-Times, Colorado Historic Newspapers Collection.

Wikipedia says the fire also destroyed The Glide.
