Notes

General Note:
The largest fire in Tampa's history occurred on March 1, 1908. At 0933 hours an alarm was received from 1914 12th Avenue in the section of Tampa called Ybor City. Upon arrival the hose wagon found a two story wood-frame boarding house that was involved. The fire originated in the wood shingled roof. The sparks quickly ignited nearby structures. In the aftermath, over 17 city blocks were consumed.
