Thank you for helping to spread this information.
This is truly sad. Bacyrus was such a nice little town off the highway. Wish I’d have stopped there and explored back in 2007 when I had the chance.
If you look at Bucyrus on Google Earth Street View, you can “visit” the town on 10/2008 – before the tragic fire – and look around at what once was.
It was a sad day to see our town and old homestead homes not thereafter the fire 😥
