Details Of. Horror In
School Fire At
CLEVELAND, Ohio, March 4.
Criminal carelessness In the construe
tlon of tho building Is responsible for
tho horrible death of ICC children
In n fire that destroyed Lake View
School, Colllnwood, a suburb of
Clovcland, this morning. As in tho
Iroquois and Slocum catastrophes, the
uutliurltlesiawokc to the terrible fato
that was Impending only after the
calamity had spent its fury.
Over the blnckcned, burned nnd
trampled bodies of tho children an
Investigation started nt once. It Im
mediately showed many of the Xatnl
defects In construction and arrange
ment. Only Two Exits Available
uniy two cxiiH wcro avnuuuio iur
nearly 400 children nnel tho doorl
leading to one of these was closed
and opened Inward.
Tho main door and the halls were '
narrow, cramped and unfit for tho
rnpld .passage of the children.
The fire escapes did not reach tho
ground nnd the entire plan ot tho
building was such as to lead County
Coroner Ilurkc to declnro that tho
construction was an outrage.
Thcro was lax dlsclpllno In tho in
rtltution. And, flnnlly, the tiro de
partment of tho village was utterly
unable to copo with the situation.
Panic was primarily responsible,
howctcr. Had the 300 little ones
been able to preserve their presence
ot mind, scores mowed down In tho
i oaring flames might have escaped In
safety. As It was, dozens wcro
crushed to death before tho flames
leached them In tho terrified rush
Dozens Leap to Death
Dozens moro wcro killed In frantic
leaps from windows. Tho remain
der wcro swallowed up. In tho flames
carried down Into 'the raging fur
naco in the cellar of the building,
when, fifteen mlnutei nftcr the first
alarm, and while ngbnlzKd parents
dashed helplessly about or tho out
sldo restrained by forco from dash
ing in the floors of the building
collapsed and made further rcscuo
After that there was naught to do
but wait for the flro to exhaust Itself
and then to take up the agonUlpg
work of digging out the victims.
Tho victims range In ages from C
to 1G years and tho story of their
fate is one ot tho most heartrending
that tho newspapers have been called
upon to chronicle
Approximately there wcro 300
children In the building' when tho
flro started, Of theso It Is known
that nt least lGIi met death. It is
thought tonight that tho list will bo
extended to 170 nt least, and more
may be added to it after a house-to-hnuso
canvass has been mado of tho
Many of tho victims woro burned
beyond recognition and where Iden
tification ,1s made It will be by means
of n bit of clothing or soma trinket.
At least a score moro probably will
die from the Injuries they sustained.
The school house was a two-story
and attic brick building and was
crectod bIx years ago. Singular lock.'
of foresight was Bhown in tho con-,
structlon, for' it was provided wlthj

Furnace Causes Fire
Tho flie started In tho basement
nnd was duo to a defective furnace.
Sovoro cold had prevailed hero dur
ing the past few dnys and tho Janitor
had n raging lire going when school
opened nt 9 o'clock this morning.
The pupils, crowding all the rooms
of the building, were in the first pe-
ilod of their studies when tho cry of1
"Fire!" was started. I
Every ambulance In the city an
swered the general ambulance alarm!
following tho discovery of the fire.1
Twenty wagons and drivers wore en
gaged from 9:40- o'clock In tho
morning until nftor 5 o'clock In tho'
afternoon. Even nt 8 o'clock sevor
nl drivers had not returned to the,
bams. Drivers and attendants wore
exhausted physically bv tho netnni
exertion of carrying nwny tho dead'
Thp first load was seven bod Ion
ineso were taken to the Ilognn
morgue in St. Clair street. Instrue
lions were received, however, to take
the bodies to the Lake Shore store-'
house. One dead little girl was tak-1
en to her home. Forty-eight bodies
were carried to homes during the
day. At 8 o'clock in tho ovonlng
two wagons wcro still busv taltlnc
the Identified dead to homes.
Tho supreme horror of the disas
ter was that tho fathers nnd mothers
of many of the llttlo victims HtooU
before the doors and' saw tho flames
creep up and blacken the faces of
the screaming children,

Rear Doorway Is Jammed
Tho rear doorway was massed to
the top with whlto faces. Llttlo
hands stretched out suppllcatlngly,
begging to bo saved. Molhcrs'falnt
td where they stood. Others tried to
gather in the young children. Hut
luntoer firemen nnd policemen
held them back. Then the flro crept
.up through the mass, silencing tho
wnlltng voices of the children, for
whom nothing, could bo dono,
though rescuers were crowded in
front ot the doors.
In their wild panic, the Children
had wedged themselves so tightly In
to tho passagowny that tho rescuers
pulled tho flesh from tho arms ot
i oino trjlng to draw them out.
Tho flro was discovered by thteo
llttlo girls who wcro in tho base
ment. They saw tho flumes eating up
Into tho wind of tho front stairway.
They rushed through tho basement
nnd told Fred, Illrtcr, tho Janitor,
lie sounded tho school flro alarm
Mrs. Mornn, principal ot tho
school, supposed It was tho regular
practlso Are drill. Tho tcachcra
marshaled their charges In good or
der and Btartcd for the stairs. Thcro
was no panic at first. Tho children
on the flrBt floor passed out safely,
thinking It the usual practlso drill.
Teacher Saves One Class
Thoso behind then saw tho smoke.
They cast frightened glnnces nt it,
but maintained order. Many of tho
children on tho third floor wcro sav
ed in this manner. Hut tho flames
spread so quickly that by the tlmo
tho children on tho third floor hail
como Into tho hall, the smoke and
sparks wcro coming up tho stairs la
Miss Laura Uodcy, who had chargo
ot tho single room on tho third floor,
kept her head nnd started tho chil
dren down tho stalls. When they
reached the second floor tho llamcn
wero eating their way up tho Btairs.
Miss Ilodoy culled to tho children
to follow her. Sho led the way to tho
fire escape, through-a room on tho
rccond floor. Most ot tho children
obeyed her and wcro saved. Some,
howocr, had broken away and fled
down tho stairs. They wcro caught
In tho death trap.
Nearly all tho children on tho'sec
ond floor perished. Their teachers
led them to tho stairs In tho rear,
for the front stairs wcro enveloped
in flames. At the sight ot the flr
tho children took fright at once.
They started pell mcll down tho
stairs nnd Into the narrow passaga
that led to the outsldo doors.
Held in Death Trap
Tho first few escaped. Somo o(
those following tripped on tho stairs
and rolled to tho bottom. , Others be
hind them ran over tho tangle at tho
lottom of tho stairs and crowded In
to tho passageway. Somo fell over
prostrate, bodies and made tho con
fusion greater. Tho children com
menced dropping over the bannisters
to get out. Thoso who had fallen on
tho stairs began to get up and In an
instant tno entrance to the passago
wns blocked. Not yet had the flames
spread to tho passage.
At first tho children wedged Into
tho passageway wcro nil standing.
But as tho others urged from behind
and ns they struggled to free them
selves from the death-hold ot tho
Jam, they fell forward In turn. It
was kept up this way until tho pas
sage wns blocked to within a foot of
tne top. Only the faces ot tho chil
dren could bo seen from the outside.

Various Statements Made
What happened at tho foot of tho
first flight ot Btairs will never bo
known, for all of thoso who woro
caught In tho full flurry of tho panic
wero killed. After the flames had
died away, however, huge heaps ot
little bodies, burned by the fire, and
