In August 1975, there was a fire in two nearby buildings on Davie Street, including the Simpson Block, which was next door to 1180 Denman Street. The fire seriously burned parts of the Simpson Building. The smoke damaged the contents of the Argyle Grocery, which sometimes had an address of 1180 Denman Street, although its normal address was 1182 Denman Street.
