By the morning of July 12, 1973, the fire had been raging for more than 24
hours and it wasn’t nearly done. Firefighters first fought the blaze up
close on the six floor of the building, but were forced to fall back to the
outside and wage a war of attrition from there for the next three days.

When the last flames finally went out on the morning of July 16, no one had
been injured, but the U.S. government had suffered a grievous loss. The
building in St. Louis was no ordinary building – the “curious blend of
warehouse and office space” was the National Personnel Records Center, home
to tens of millions of U.S. military records.

myself.” M. Hashimoto
