Summary
Coverage, 26 June 1975, of the fire at the Little Oil Company in downtown Richmond. The recording consists of WRVA's regularly scheduled programming, including "Open for Opinion" with Larry Dodd, and the "Tim Timberlake Show," but also includes updates on the fire. Alden Aaroe, Walt Williams, and Tim Timberlake report from the scene, with information on the fire and the leaks in two gasoline storage tanks, and the fear that it could spread to three tanks holding fuel oil and kerosene. Many of the updates concern the weather and traffic conditions. The fire was started by lightning the previous evening. A portion of Interstate 95 was closed due to the fire
