1880
Boiler Explosion and Fire - Baltimore, MD
Detail >>
A boiler in the rolling-mill of Coates Brothers at Locust Point, in Baltimore, Maryland, exploded on January 5, 1880. The mill was much wrecked and several of the employees were seriously injured. The boiler was elevated some 8 or 10 feet from the floor of the mill, and its fragments passed out through the north and west sides and end of the building. The day shift had just left the building, and the night force had gone to work. George Wirt, Joseph Vickers, and Charles Thomas were seriously hurt and scalded, but none of them were fatally injured. Joseph Morgau, John Geisler, Jolin Williams, Zaebariah Jackson, Joseph Kenny, William Walton, George Rice, Charles Disney, and a boy - all employees in the mill - were scalded and some of them received injuries from flying splinters. The dome of the boiler was thrown 150 yards. The rears of several small dwelling-houses immediately west of the mill were damaged. The damage from the explosion and a fire which followed reach $6.000. The mill was running to its full capacity at the time.

1880
Turner Hall Fire - New York, NY

1934
Fenway Park Fire - Boston, MA
Detail >>
Tom Yawkey, who bought the Boston Red Sox in 1933, began a major overhaul of Fenway Park. That project came to a halt on January 5, 1934, when a fire burned in the building for five hours. Few areas of the ballpark were left undamaged. Construction crews worked to get the park open in time for the April 15, 1934, season opener. When it opened, Fenway Park had a new look. Concrete bleachers replaced the wooden ones, the wooden left field wall was replaced by a sheet metal wall, and "Duffy's Cliff" was leveled off. (Duffy's Cliff was a 10-foot bank near the left field wall from which fans were allowed to watch the game. The Sox's Duffy Lewis became so skilled at playing balls that were hit to that area, it became known as Duffy's Cliff.) This was the second time Fenway Park burned. The first time was on May 8, 1926.
