In 1905, Fraser suffered a major fire which destroyed several commercial buildings and a few residential buildings. The aftermath is seen in this picture. In the right of the picture can be seen Steffens Hall, which survived the fire. Some of the buildings that were total losses included an agricultural machinery manufacturer, a bowling alley, a meat market, a slaughterhouse, a cigar shop and a tavern.
