30th Anniversary of MGM Fire

November 21st, 2010 Leave a comment Go to comments

It’s hard to believe that the MGM fire took place 30 years ago today.  My husband and I actually stayed at the hotel prior to the fire and had no idea how unsafe the building was.  There’s a very good article about the problems that caused the loss of 85 lives at http://commandsafety.com/2010/11/1980-mgm-grand-hotel-fire-thirty-years-ago/ When local government officials are debating whether to require fire sprinklers, they need to be reminded about what can happen when they are not present in a high rise.
