Photo of the Toomer’s Oaks on fire after the 1995 Iron Bowl

Our biography of Toomer’s Corner continues today with a photo of a young Auburn man extinguishing the fire that apparently engulfed the Toomer’s Oaks after the 1995 Iron Bowl.

The Baby Boomers tell of strands of toilet paper draped over the use-to-only-roll power lines regularly being Bic’d into oblivion by drunken passersby. But it’s funny how most of the major, modern era, tree-damaging blazes always have a way of happening after Auburn beats Alabama or Georgia.

Here’s a webcam shot of the fire set at Toomer’s Corner last November.
