One of the few photographs of damaged houses and flats in the South-of-Market area that escaped the fire. This appears to be near Dore Street on the edge of the burned district. Hundreds of buildings collapsed in the South-of-Market area as they sank into the liquefied ground. Hundreds of people were crushed or trapped in the wreckage of such buildings which burned before anyone could be rescued.
