Title

Narrative card: How it started

Description

The fire began around 12:00pm on May3rd, 1901 at the Cleveland Fibre Factory on Davis and Union Streets. A small spark from a nearby chimney ignited Spanish moss drying on wooden platforms at the factory. Workers attempted to extinguish the flames, but the wind carried burning ember to nearby wooden structures and was quickly out of control.
