Wreckage of George Saettel's grocery store on South Main Street in Dayton. The store was the site of an explosion caused by a gas leak during the flood. George Saettel was blown across the street by the impact of the blast, and passed away from his injuries. In the center of the wreckage is the store's cash register, which largely survived the explosion.
