I never heard about a fire. I think the game videos simply were never saved in the first place. Videotape was expensive in those days and took a lot of space to store. Both TV44 and the White Sox were low-budget operations, and there weren't any pennant-clinchers or many historic Sox games in the '70's that would have inspired anybody to save tapes for future generations.
