Allen understands some pictures can be a shock for residents who hope to return home.
"You could see images of the area where you live, and in fact you can see the image, where was your home. I just want everyone to know that there were hundreds of people ...," he says. "I really don't think we could do more. It was a terrible fire, no matter what we tried to do turned out differently. ... We did everything we can".

According to statistics, all the schools were saved, and only 10% of the structures in town were destroyed. Allen says firefighters worked to stop the fire that raged in the center of the city, and many buildings, including homes, businesses, schools and hospitals were saved.
