It was one of Kansas City’s deadliest fires. Six men were killed fighting a massive blaze at a gas station on August 18, 1959. Firefighters ran for their lives when a gas tank exploded sending a huge fireball across Southwest Boulevard. 500 men from both sides of the state line were dispatched to the fire near State Lane Road in Kansas City, Kan. 100 people, mostly firefighters, were injured.
The men who died battling the blaze were Capt. George Bartels, Capt. Peter Sirna, firefighter Virgil Sams, firefighter Neal Owen, firefighter Delbert Stone and civilian Francis Toomes. A monument paying tribute to their sacrifice was dedicated on Dec. 18, 1999.
KMBC-TV photographer Joe Adams shot this famous footage of the explosions and fire. Veteran Kansas City newsman Charles Gray narrated the report and is seen in front of the KMBC studios at the beginning of the film. Jeremy Hubbard’s report on the memorial ceremony in 1999 is also included here.

Major religions established congregations along the street, just outside of Downtown Los Angeles. The USC Center for Religion and Civic Culture toured the Wilshire Boulevard corridor with students to look at how historic institutions are adapting in today’s world.
The video captures tour stops at the First Congregational Church of Los Angeles, the Islamic Center of Southern California, Joohyang Presbyterian Church, Wilshire Boulevard Temple and Immanuel Presbyterian Church. These congregations each provide a unique perspective on religion in Los Angeles today.
