Two adjoining 110-year-old buildings in downtown Silverton were gutted Wednesday morning, April 6, in the worst fire the town has seen since the 1992 blaze at Town Hall.
No injuries were reported, but the Pride of the West Bar and Grill and Adelaide’s Antiques store were devastated. Three upstairs apartments were also destroyed, but were unoccupied.
Fire departments from Durango and Ouray helped the Silverton San Juan Volunteer Fire Department fight the blaze, which also damaged the adjoining Silverton Brewery and caused minor smoke damage to other nearby buildings.
