Impact of Our Lady of the Angels School Fire

The mother of one of the children who died in the fire, at Our Lady of the Angels School, remembers what happened on December 1, 1958.

Most of the children who survived got out of the burning building through the second-story windows.  Not all of the ladders were high-enough, however, to reach the only-available exit points.
