As we approach the centennial of the 1922 fire that destroyed the majority of downtown Astoria, we decided to discuss the pre-fire buildings that withstood conflagration, and still stand today. How and why did these structures avoid destruction? Some were saved by the quick thinking of brave and devoted citizens. Others had been built with fire safety and longevity in mind and, in turn, influenced new trends in modern construction during Astoria's rebuild.
