People enjoying a warm, sunny Saturday in New York City first noticed smoke arising from a building at about 4:40 p.m. and rushed to gather at the base of a 10-story building that was quickly engulfed in flames. The scene greeting them was horrific: Dozens of workers were trapped on the building's ninth floor. With the flames closing in, some chose to jump to their deaths.
More than 100 years later, the 1911 fire at the Triangle Shirtwaist Factory remains one of the deadliest industrial disasters in American history.
