Courthouse Fire, Late '20s/Early '30s?

My grandmother was born in Best in 1925, and she believed the courthouse to have burned and her original birth certificate to have been destroyed while she was a child. They had since moved to Nolan County, but her mother re-registered her birth, remember the date but possibly spelling her first name differently (Marguerita - Margaret). I have found information on a courthouse fire in 1999 but nothing else, only that the county seat moved on her very date of birth - 23 May 1925 - because a rancher refused land to allow the town to expand.

Anyone know about this alleged fire in the late 1920s/early '30s?
