On March 25, 1911 the Triangle Shirtwaist Co., a factory where many women immigrants worked creating garments, caught fire and burned in NYC.  146 people were killed and many more sustained injuries due to conditions that made it difficult or impossible to escape.  Triangle remains one of the deadliest industrial building fires on record, but it did lead to positive changes related to worker safety and Code reform.  It is said that the development of NFPA 101: Life Safety Code can be traced directly to the Triangle fire.
