"Another terrible blaze occurred at the Iroquois Theater on December 30, 1903 as a fire broke out in the crowded theater during a performance of a vaudeville show, starring the popular comedian Eddie Foy. The fire was believed to have been started by faulty wiring leading to a spotlight and claimed the lives of hundreds of people, including children, who were packed into the afternoon show for the holidays."--Cf. Weird Chicago Iroquois Theatre fire WWW site / Troy Taylor, September 11, 2009 (http://www.weirdchicago.com/iroquois.html)
