Wow...thirty years. I was in that castle the week before, even though walk-thru haunted houses scared the living hell out of me back then..I was about to hit my 20's, but age didn't matter. Then this happened, and I was even more frightened of them.Last edited by Mike Gallagher, Monday, May 12, 2014 11:03 AM
Saw this article earlier today on FB. While certainly tragic, this incident led to increased fire safety measures throughout the US, which have saved counltess lives since.
