1903 Iroquois Theatre Fire

A terrible blaze occurred at the Iroquois Theater in Chicago on December 30, 1903 as a fire broke out in the crowded theater during a performance of a vaudeville show, starring the popular comedian Eddie Foy. The fire was believed to have been started by faulty wiring leading to a spotlight and claimed the lives of over 600 people, including children, who were packed into the afternoon show for the holidays.
