The day started early for the staff of The Arizona Gazette. Sightings of Halley's Comet were coming in from all parts of Arizona, King Edward of England had died, and Arizona law enforcement agencies were in hot pursuit of two known killers, At 6:05 a.m, on this warm and windless morning a fire alarm was turned in from the Adams Hotel Firemen rushed to the scene with Gazette reporters hot on their heels, but the fire was already uncontrollably sweeping through the 14-year-old hotel, By 7 a.m. the showplace of Phoenix was a total loss. Firemen turned their hoses away from the blazing hotel in an attempt to save the other buildings in the downtown area and through their heroic efforts young Phoenix was saved. Miraculously, the fire claimed no victim c Less than a block away at 42 W. Adams, The Gazette staff had been working through the morning under the pressure of their deadlines and against the more ominous pressure of the spreading fire, Before the embers of the Adams Hotel had completely died, Gazette readers were finding out all of the details on the pages of their evening newspaper. Today, The Gazette is still serving Phoenix, covering news that happens around the world... or just down the block.
