I just now viewed all the pictures from the news story link above. Lot of them I've never seen or knew existed. Fantastic old photos.

Agreed, and it's a shame that this landmark is continually the target of arsonists!

Ironic thing about this place is that in the sixties/seventies, there was a bar/pool hall still in the main structure.

The name of the place.......................The Flame Room

These are not the first suspicious fires and this is not the first time the SAFD or SAPD has been to the site...they have been happening for the last month or more. The owner of the property let the caretaker of the property go because, apparently, having a "presence" on the site wasn't a deterrant to vandals any longer. It's sad that people can't have some respect for history.

Actually I have done a Historical investigation on this and the fires can be dated back to 1894.

The arsonit will be easy to catch. He/she is over 120 years old. Can't possibly run that fast.
