Iroquois theatre fire By: Maya

Theatre fire

Have you heard of the fire that killed over six hundred people? The fire was at the Iroquois Theatre and Carl prinzler was one of the people to help prevent something like that to happen ever again. Carl felt bad for not helping the people but was also grateful for being alive, so he created something to make sure a fire as tragic as the theatre fire would not happen.

Main person involved

The main person involved in the theatre fire was Carl prinzler. Carl prinzler was not at the theatre when the fire happened but he was supposed to be. Carl prinzler felt bad because he was supposed to be there and was not so he wanted to invent something so it would not happen again.(Schoettle1).

What did he invent

Carl prinzler made doors that would open from the inside and would be locked from the outside. He made doors that would open from the inside because during the fire the doors were locked they could not open from the inside.Basically if you were inside you would be able to get out and if you were outside you would not be able to come back inside.(Schoettle1).

New laws

The new laws for all theatres is that all doors had to open for the inside even if they don't open from the outside this was the law because during the fire the doors were locked and the exits had to be clearly marked meaning everyone had to see the exits no matter where you were at.(Goodwin1).

In conclusion

In conclusion Carl prinzler was important to the Iroquois theatre fire because he created doors to help if something like the fire happened again the people would be able to get out. The doors opened from the inside and not the outside during the fire the door was to crowded and the was locked. Carl felt bad and made doors that would not be locked.
