"As is often the case in South Carolina, late May was very warm in 1877, and to compound the fire danger, it was very dry as well. On Sunday the 3rd of June the sun rose clear and hot. Somewhat before ten o'clock the bell in the ninety foot high wooden steeple of Unionville Baptist Church began summoning the faithful to 'Sabbath School'..."

"Weekly Union Times editors Stokes told what happened next: 'About half past 12 o'clock, while four-fifths of our white inhabitants were at church, the dreaded alarm of fire was sounded upon Main Street, and by the time many could arrive upon the spot the wooden building occupied by W.R. Briggs and Company, adjoining Hill and Company's large brick building, was one sheet of flame and the boxing under the eaves of the latter building on fire the whole length, and in a quarter of an hour the whole inside of the upper story of that building was one roaring mass of flame and smoke. The wind was hard.'"
