Summery:
Someone set fire in a children's care home, and 31 teenage girls were killed in there. Nineteen girls at the age of 14 to 17 were killed on the scene and the others were killed in the hospital from the burns. The burns was so bad that they couldn't identify the body with their own eyes; the doctors had to run DNA test. It was a home capacity of 400. 

This relates to the Triangle Shirtwaist Fire because a fire started in a factory and people were trap inside the building. People had to jump of the building for them not to die slowly. 

Questions:

1) What would you do if a fire started inside a home? Explain

2) What can you do in order to prevent it?

  1. I would try and put it out because fire fighters arent always fast to get to the place where the fire is. Always have a fire extinguisher and being prepared just in case.

  2. If a fire were to start in a house you leave immediately. You don't stay to gather any belongings or anything. A way to prevent these a fire from starting is to be very aware of anything in your house that potentially care start a fire.

  3. I would try to put out the fire, but if it gets to hectic, I would try to find everyone and pull them to safety. You need a fire extinguisher at all times like Gabe said, as well as any safety procedure for events such as this.

  4. If it started as a small fire, you could try to put it out. Easily done if you have a fire extinguisher in your house. If it was a large fire, you immediately leave the house to a safe distance and call for help. A way to help prevent fires is to be very cautious with appliances and what is around them.

  6. The first thing you have to do when there is a fire in a home is to evacuate everyone in the house because once the fire gets bigger, it's harder to leave and breathe. After, you should call 911. I think what we can do to prevent fires from starting is to turn off all appliances and double check once you leave your house. That's the most you can do.

  8. If there was a fire in my home I would do my best to get out of there as quickly as possible. I think the only way for things like this to be prevented is to be aware and have a plan and make sure that everyone knows the plan.

  9. I would probably get out of the house as soon as possible and then call 911. To prevent a fire from starting I would put out/turn off anything that has a flame or deals with heat.

  10. If a small fire started in my house, I would try to put it out. However, if the extinguisher did not work, I would leave. In order to prevent fires and keep everyone safe, I would have a set escape plan as well as take precautionary measures to stop fires before they happen.

  11. If a fire started in a house, I would most certainly try to put it out but depending on the size to call the fire department. In order to prevent one make sure to check all outlets for sparks and fix loose plugs. And always keep a fire extinguisher handy.

  12. Kevin... awesome connection my man I barely remember this event but this is incredibly true. I think that the location of this fire matters: Guatamala. Developing countries such as Guatamala don't have the same requirements for fire department and building safety inspections. I think this lack of preparation by the government contributed to the number of deaths here. The way to fix this is to put in place a stronger building inspection policy, especially where kids are living!

    1. I agree with you that Guatemala and other
      Latin American countries don't have enough resources and we should help out.

  13. If It was a fire that just started than try to put it out but, if it already spread too much than you try to warn as many people as possible to get out of the building. How we can prevent this, well simple, just keep flammable items away from the stove or any high heat producing products, make sure the gas pipes are running well, and if it's an apartment than get someone to investigate that the building is well stable.

  14. i honestly think that this is a tragedy and it is so sad that the fire killed so many kids specially they are innocent. i think that people should have some safety inspections and protect themselves when accident happens.

  15. I would call 911 and get the hell out of there. And You can prevent a fire by having everything in your house be made of stainless steel, so nothing can catch on fire.
