At 9 p.m., one of the oil lanterns fell onto the stage and within minutes the school was engulfed in flames. Seventy-seven people lost their lives that night. During the past 100 years, we have made great strides in implementing fire codes and regulations to protect our citizens; but we must remain diligent.

Shutdown?
