Fire Fighters Killed in Montreal

March 2, 1960

In the midst of a fire, a weakened three-story wall collapsed and eight fire fighters fell with the falling debris and were buried under 10 feet of broken bricks and cement slabs. Fellow fire fighters worked rapidly and were able to save three of these men. The other five were lost in the tragedy. This was the worst fire tragedy in Montreal since 1877.
