History of Fires
in Council Bluffs
Fires have dramatically changed the landscape of the city-- and taken many lives.
Historical Society member and fire historian Cal Petersen will present a program about the local blazes with dozens of photos Sunday, March 25, at 2 pm at Bayliss Hall, just north of Bayliss Park. There is no admission charge.
