Storyboard Text

  • The fire most likely was started because a cutter flicked a hot ash  or tossed a live cigarette butt into a scrap bin.
  • Soon, the flames became uncontrollable and the 8th and 9th floors became an inferno.
  • Engine company 72 was quick onto the scene to help the girls trapped inside.
  • 146 dead
  • Those who reached the ninth-floor stairway door found it locked. Nobody who went to that door survived, nor any who reached the windows. 
  • Victims of the fire died from smoke inhalation, burning, or jumping.
  • Of the 500 Triangle employees who reported  for work that day, 146 died
