The Triangle Factory Fire Project
Please note, this event has expired.
On March 25, 1911, a fire swept through the eighth, ninth, and tenth floors of the Triangle Shirtwaist Factory in New York City. Thirty minutes later, the fire was under control, but 146 people, mainly young immigrant girls, had died. The fire, and the trial that followed, was a pivotal in the labor movement and creating workers safety regulations.
