20- Terminal Hotel Fire Victims.

Around 3 a.m. on the early morning of May 16, a fire broke out in either the basement or kitchen of the Terminal Hotel. Fire trucks arrived within minutes of the alarm, but the fire spread so rapidly that nothing could be done. The roof of the five-story hotel collapsed, plunging through the fifth and fourth floors. A total of 34 hotel occupants perished, making it the worst fire until that time in Atlanta history.
