The Cleveland Daily Banner reports:
Heavy smoke drifted over the city today as Cleveland Fire Department personnel fought the largest local fire of the year. The old Cleveland Chair Company building located on Ninth Street S.E. collapsed as fire raged through the structure.
Historical information noted the business started making upholstered chairs in 1914. The building is owned by the Ron Jackson family who operate Jackson-Catnapper which manufactures the Catnapper brand recliner and other furniture, and was more than a block long, according to Sullivan.
