on North Fulton Street the morning of June 28, 2002 

The following is a quote from the Cincinnati Enquirer June 29, 2002

"Apartment Fire Leaves Two Dead
Wauseon, Ohio-Fire destroyed a historic downtown apartment building early Friday, killing two residents.  The fire started about 4:15 a.m. when a man cooking tacos tried to put out a kitchen grease fire by throwing water on it, which led to more flames, Fire Chief Jim Gamber said. The man escaped. Killed were Glen Rice, 81 and Cindy Weber-Cox, 45. Both bodies were found on the second floor.
The Arcade building was constructed in 1904. It had 20 apartments, offices and stores."
