Mar 13, 2002 — More than a week after a fire destroyed an entire block of downtown Carthage, village fire officials say the smouldering embers finally seem to be extinguished. But they say the area is still a "fire scene" for safety reasons.
People affected by the blaze are working to recuperate. David Sommerstein reports on the latest relief efforts.
