68th Anniversary of the Hartford Circus Fire
July 6th marks the 68th anniversary of the Harford Circus tent fire.. 168 lives were lost that day... one child was unidentified and was buried without a name.. she was known as Little Miss 1565.
Here is a website about the fire...
http://circusfire1944.com/"The education of a firefighter and the continued education of a firefighter is what makes "real" firefighters. Continuous skill development is the core of progressive firefighting. We learn by doing and doing it again and again, both on the training ground and the fireground."
Lt. Ray McCormack, FDNY
