Bklink: Remembering Brooklyn Tragedies

"On the evening of December 5, 1876, over 300 people perished in a fire that overtook the Brooklyn Theatre on Johnson Street. Started by a oil lamp, the fire spread to the ceiling, engulfing the auditorium. The theatre had no fire escapes and only 5 narrow exits."--Icky in Brooklyn
