On August 14, 2010, the Healdsburg Post Office burned in a spectacular fire. 22 Engine companies from Healdsburg and all over the North Coast responded. Photographer Austin Brewin and local Healdsburg columnist and photographer Ray Holley captured the drama. The fire came after a rancorous public debate about moving the Post Office from this favored downtown site.
Photographs by Brewin and Holley will be on display at the Healdsburg Library through August 31.
