In the evening hours of April 8, 1847, a massive inferno erupted from a barn located in the commercial district of Clyde, New York. The alarm was raised and the community quickly moved to action, working together to put the fire out. A combination of high winds and the close proximity of neighboring buildings allowed the flames to spread, destroying everything in its path. Fortunately with the help of a little rain, the blaze was subdued. Nearly everything was lost between the corner of Glasgow and Columbia Streets. While the damage done to the buildings was severe and costly, no one was killed or seriously injured.
