History Up in Smoke

It took only an hour or less for fire — and a brisk wind — to level the Historic Rexmere Hotel in Stamford, long known as the Frank Cyr Center when it housed BOCES. The News thanks Amanda Popp for contributing this dramatic photo. Like the firefighters, news reporters found the flames had consumed most of the structure by the time they could get to the scene.
