The Triangle Factory Fire occurred on March 25, 1911, in an overcrowded garment factory under the ownership of notoriously ruthless employers, Max Blanck and Isaac Harris. The fire killed 146 workers, mostly Jewish and Italian women who were the victims of faulty fire escapes, locked doors, and fatal conditions. The fire and its fall-out would eventually draw attention to the need for industrial reform, workers' rights, and fire code enforcement in New York.
