It was plenty dark at 3:15 a.m. when Allan Kimble was driving down Main St. after a long second shift at Altas Crankshaft. So he had no trouble spotting the flames shooting out of the grill of the business at 112 S. Main St. Kimble rushed immediately to the police station to report the blaze. It was the onset of one of the most spectacular and tragic events in Fostoria
