Twenty Eight Buildings Condemned In Coshocton

April 1912--The state's Deputy Fire Marshall paid a visit to Coshocton and didn't like what he saw. He determined that twenty eight buildings were fire traps and would need to be razed. While the majority consisted of barns and outbuildings, nine homes fell under the order. The marshall determined too many places proved to be good tinder for a disastrous fire.

I guess you could call it "the Chicago effect".
