Children Die in Film Fire
An amateur motion picture show operated by two boys in Sao Paulo resulted in the death of five children and in serious burns to twenty-two others. Fifty children had paid an admission charge of two pennies and had crowded into the basement of a house where the two boys had set up a small projection machine and a screen. The place had only one exit and when the fire started in a pile of film, most of them were unable to escape.
