1999: Six firefighters are killed in a fire at the Worcester Cold Storage and Warehouse in Worcester, Massachusetts. The fire eventually grew to five-alarm status and raged for six days before being brought under control. Pictured is a memorial the fallen firefighters outside the Franklin Street Fire Station, which was erected on the site of the Worcester Cold Storage and Warehouse Co. building.
