    Default Worcester Cold Storage Fire

    I was just wondering if anyone had information on the fire (web-sites, their reactions, or knowledge of anyone who was there) i am writing a paper on it for history, and I just need some help with information so i can make it as good as possible. i have read the book 3000 degrees but i need additional information.



    Anything helps

    You might want to try the archives of Esquire magazine.
    They had an excellent article, The Perfect Fire, by Sean Flynn. It was in the July 2000 issue. This article also had the anatomy of a fire; How an old abandoned warehouse turned into a six story furnace. (Flash presentation on line)
