Remembering the Triangle Factory Fire, 100 years later

Triangle Fire

19 of 20

The tenth floor of the factory housed the offices of company executives, the switchboard, 40 garment pressers, inspectors and the packing and shipping room. After receiving a warning call from a worker on the eighth floor, most were able to escape over the roof to the adjacent New York University building with the aid of faculty members and students. Of the 70 people on that floor, all were saved but two.
