The Freedom Valley Chronicles: The Millennium Fire – Part Seventeen Millennium III Office Building

The Millennium Fire began at the construction site of Stables At Millennium, a residential housing complex being built on Washington Street in Conshohocken. The construction site was adjacent to the site of the Millennium III Office Building, seen to the left in the photograph above.

While the fire itself damaged some exterior aspects of the Millennium III Office Building, the heat from the fire also impacted some of the equipment within the building.

Note the desks to the right shows no impact from the heat of the fire, yet the desk to the left shows how the heat from the fire melted some of its drawers.
