The Triangle Shirtwaist Factory fire in Manhattan, New York City on March 25, 1911 was the deadliest industrial disaster in the history of the city, and one of the deadliest in U.S. history. The fire caused the deaths of 146 garment workers – 123 women and 23 men – who died from the fire, smoke inhalation, or falling or jumping to their deaths.

The large number of deaths exposed the dangerous conditions in high-rise factories and prompted the creation of new building, fire, and safety codes around the United States.

The fire was put out in half an hour, but it was not soon enough. When firefighters entered the floors to continue to bring the smoldering fire under control, they found charred machines, intense heat -- and bodies. Of the 500 employees, 146 were dead. The bodies were taken to a covered pier on 26th Street, near the East River. Thousands of people lined up to identify the bodies of loved ones. After a week, all but 7 were identified.
