In fact, the night the house caught on fire a friend of the sodders had seen the kids in a car driving away from the fire (The Sodder Children Mystery). Furthermore, a week after the fire at a dinner a waitress had said she had seen the children with some adults, she could not remember how many, and she was not allowed to talk to the children but the children all looked very upset and sad (The Sodder Children Mystery). COnsidering how many people said they saw the kids after the fire it is no wonder why they think they were kidnapped. For example, a woman who had worked at a Charleston hotel whoahd seen the childrens photos said “ she had seen four of the five a week after the fire.” and also “ The children were accompanied by two women and two men, all of italian extraction” (16 of the Strangest Unsolved Mysteries). Another example is a manager at another hotel said he also saw the children with 4 adults and all speaking italian ( Sodder Children).
The Triangle Shirtwaist Factory fire begun on March 25,1911. The fire started because someone had dropped a cigarette and started the fire. The fire started on the 8th floor of the factory, it continued up to the 9th floor. The fire killed around 145 workers. Some people jumped and killed themselves rather than getting burned alive, one jumper survived the jump.
One of the main reasons the fire took such a psychological toll on the New Yorkers was because of the workers jumping to there deaths. One witness even remarked the event saying quote 'I know a new sound a terrible sound the sound of a body hitting the pavement". The inferno was also not an uncommon occurrence the triangle shirt was burned before the tragedy to collect insurance money. Knowing this information, many Jewish and women workers went on strike to secure improved working conditions. There strike in fact proved successful with the New York state legislature creating the Factory Investigating Commission.
Causes and Consequences of the Triangle Shirtwaist Factory Fire On March 25, 1911, the Triangle Shirtwaist Factory caught fire, killing nearly one hundred and fifty workers. It has since been referred to as the “worst workplace disaster in New York City history until 9/11.” The corruption of Max Blanck and Isaac Harris, Triangle owners, and Tammany Hall permitted the horrendous working conditions in the factory which ultimately caused the Triangle fire and consequent one hundred and forty-six deaths. Although tragic, this disaster served as a catalyst in the development of modern occupational health and safety regulations and fire prevention

At the beginning of the memoir, the author starts off the story by explaining a time she started a fire by cooking hotdogs when she was just three years old. She “screamed” and “smelled the burning and heard a horrible crackling as the fire singed my hair and eyelashes” (Walls 9). An exposed fire occurs multiple times in the book, which represents the author’s dad’s continuous drinking habits. Not only is the fire destructive and harmful to the family, but so is the father’s alcoholic addiction. This metaphor represents a large negative impact on the family.
Fires are raging across New York City the first one was on March 18, 1741, at the governor 's house in Fort George it grew out of control and destroyed both the governor 's house and the church next to it. After that, fires began to spring up across the city. On April 6, four fires broke out and a black man was seen running from the scene of the fire, he was arrested along with 20 others who are thought to have been involved in some way.
All the sudden we could smell the burning cinders of the fire and the place was in complete chaos. Distress everywhere, people rushing for the stairs, it was utter madness at its finest. At first I struggled to find my sister as the floor was crowded with people everywhere rushing towards the roof staircase. But she caught sight of me and practically bulldozed through the crowed to get to me. We rushed through the limited exit where we could see fire below us when we made it onto the roof.
Despite desperate efforts to raise ladders and spread nets there was little the firefighters could do to help the terrified women that were lining the windows of the ninth floor. The longest ladders only reached the seventh and the fire nets were useless to the girls who were falling from over 100 feet above. Several of the girls jumping were already on fire, demonstrating that there was only the choice to jump or burn to death. Thousands of people continued to watch as firemen poured water on the building and entered to find even more girls. The elevator shaft was clogged with at least thirty more bodies, most burned beyond recognition; in the ninth floor workroom
The book i am responding to is Fahrenheit 451 by Ray Bradbury. In Fahrenheit 451, there is a particular event in the book that rather shocked me. In section 1, from pages 33 to 37, Montag and his fire crew get a call to an elderly womans house in the middle of the night to burn her books. The firefighters demand she tell them where the books are and they tear up her house looking for them. What surprises me the most is that the firefighters start the fires and don 't put them out like in our modern day world.
