Celluloid Fire Traps Three Employees

Celluloid Fire Traps Three Employees

Fire which started in a pile of celluloid in the third floor dress trimming shop of a seven-story loft building in New York City, trapped two girls and a man, attracted a large crowd from the Times Square section.

Great clouds of acrid smoke were given off by the celluloid and other burning material. Eight of the shop employees succeeded in making their exit but two girls were brought down by means of a ladder, and an aerial ladder was raised to rescue a man on the seventh floor.

Adjoining this, but separated only by a twelve-foot alley, is located the fire-resistive central fire alarm building. Even though burning walls from the city hall fell upon the fire alarm headauarteis, there was no damage to the fire alarm apparatus and the fire alarm system was never out of service for a moment. The only damage was a number of broken wired glass window’s in the fire alarm headquarters when the wall of the city hall fell upon it.
