Globe Fire in the 1910 - 1915 era

I have been trying to verify a fact in my father's life story that there was a major fire in Globe sometime between 1910 and 1915 when a good portion of the town burned. My grandfather was a saloon keeper and they took the whiskey out into the street to protect it and the men all started drinking it and got drunk and failed to fight the fire. Does anyone know about this fire? My father, Joseph Craig Givens and future State Mine Inspector, Cliff Murdock, were locked up in jail for their own good - as they were trying to protect the whiskey and the mob didn't want them getting in the way. It is a great story but is it true?
