A Beaverton Rural Fire Protection District crew mops up a fire at a grocery store in Garden Home in April 1953 or 1954 as a sheriff’s deputy, back to camera, surveys the damage. The store was located on the corner of Oleson and Garden Home roads now occupied by a Dairy Queen. (Photograph by Ernie Metcalfe.)
