Fire at the Orange Hotel being fought by firefighters in Daytona Beach, Florida. Photographed on April 2, 1956.

The fire started about 11:30 p.m. in the Empire Theater and spread to the adjacent Orange Hotel. After a water main collapsed, firemen laid hose lines to the Halifax River about a block and a half away.

Note the Sherwin Williams paint store in the background at the far right next to the remains of the Empire Theater.
