    The Cocoanut Grove fire in Boston, Massachusetts, killed 492 people in November 1942 and was the deadliest building fire in the United States of the last 100 years. In fact, it was the second deadliest building fire in American history after the Iroquois Theater fire in Chicago in 1903 when 603 people were killed. Fire code reform followed the Cocoanut Grove fire, which briefly captured national headlines in the war-stricken nation, and the nightclub’s owner was convicted of involuntary manslaughter.
