    • Reif-Spettigue Fire Ceremony

    • A ceremony was held this past Saturday in downtown Honesdale commemorating the 100th anniversary of the Reif-Spettigue Fire. It was the only fire in the history of Honesdale in which a member of the fire department died. George Bergmann’s body was found several days after the fire. It was 30 degrees below zero the night of Jan. 14, 1912 when the fire engulfed the Spettigue Hardware Store and Reif Shoe Store.
