Does anyone know if the fire came close to Palmer Avenue? In 1909 my father was born in the house which became the "Mill Deli" and "Antique Shop" and "Real Estate Agent".

No it did not. If you go to www.poststar.com you can find a complete coverage of the fire. There were only 4 buildings involved in the fire on Main St. Mollie's Mason Jar, A tatoo parlor, a furniture store and I believe a vacant building.

Hi Debbie,
I am Joan Fenton Welch and live in the "Mill House" with my son, Thomas (Welch Reality Group), his wife Sheri and family. They reside here during the winter and in the summer on the Hudson where they had built a home and raised their family (all of whom are in college, etc.) The fire destroyed Mollie's Mason Jar (formerly the Bellvedere Bar), a tattoo parlor (where Bus and Joe's pool hall, etc. was (when I was in my teens), a recently emptied store front (was Waring's Pharmacy) and the Densmore building (owned by David and Diane Densmore) which was full of beautiful quality Adirondack and PA style furniture. Their mattress building (formerly Myer's Dept. Store when I was young) is still standing but I understand that it will come down probably this week. Only four families living quarters were involved...fortunately no children. Hopefully by the end of this week they will be settled into their new living quarters with needs all fulfilled thanks to the generous caring people of Corinth. The response has been wonderful. The best part is that noone was injured! God is in control and as the days pass, we will find something good coming from all this.
Tom and Sheri have repainted and done some things to make the house more in keeping with its roots. It was built in 1890. They have had the original blueprints mounted and framed, etc. I am sure they would be interested in any imput you might have regarding the history of the house. It was fun decorating here for the holidays. Their oldest daughter, Marci, was married on January 19th. and her pre-wedding gatherings, etc. were held here. A beautiful place to hold special times in.

What a tragedy to my bith place (Corinth) The town has always be my home although I left in 1970, I have never lost touch. A massive piece of History is gone, but thank God there was no loss of life. I read the local news weekly, does anyone know what caused the fire? Please post

CORINTH - A furnace initially thought to have caused the massive February fire on Main Street wasn't the culprit, fire officials said Thursday.

Saratoga County Fire Coordinator Ed Tremblay said investigators have dug out the furnace from the rubble of the Woodworks Furniture Gallery and found it was barely damaged.

If it had caused the fire, Tremblay said, the furnace would have shown obvious damage from heat and flames.

The Saratoga County Fire Cause and Origin Team is still looking into what caused the fire, but Tremblay said it's possible they'll never know.

"As we've excavated, we've looked at everything, but there just isn't that much to look at, really," he said.

As a result, the investigators must say arson is possible, but only because the cause is unknown, Tremblay said.

"When you can't determine a cause, anything is possible," he said.

Insurance company investigators agreed with the cause assessment, and Tremblay said he did not think it would prevent local business owners from collecting damages.

The size of the fire -- which destroyed three Main Street businesses -- made the investigation a difficult endeavor.

"For a fire of this magnitude, that affected such a large area, I can't say this is all that unusual," Tremblay said.
