FIRE ALARM DIVISION. KENMORE 1100 



November 19, 1943. 

Stephen C. Garrity, Esq. , 
State Fire Marshal, 
1010 Commonwealth Avenue, 
Brookline, Mass. 

Dear Sir: 

In accordance with section 3 of chapter 148 of the General 
Laws (Ter. Ed.) of the Commonwealth of Massachusetts, submit 
herewith a report of an investigation into the circumstances of 
the fire which occurred at the Cocoanut Grove, 17 Piedmont 
Street, Boston, Mass., on November 28, 1942, which fire resulted 
in 490 deaths and 166 injuries, as recorded by the Boston 
Committee on Public Safety. 

A report of this fire, upon the form prescribed by the 
Commissioner of Public Safety, was delivered to the State Fire 
Marshal within forty-eight hours of the fire, as required by 
G. L. (Ter. Ed. ) , c. 148, s. 2. 

I commenced the investigation of this fire on Sunday, 
November 29, 1942. The State Fire Marshal, the Mayor of Boston, 
military and naval authorities and representatives of the Federal 
Bureau of Investigation were there present. 

Hearings, open to representatives of the press, were held 
daily thereafter, except Sundays, at Fire Headquarters, 60 
Bristol Street, Boston, Mass., until Wednesday, January 20, 
1943. Public hearings were suspended at that time to avoid 
possible interference with criminal proceedings initiated by 
the Attorney-General and the District Attorney for Suffolk 
County. My investigation, however, was continued, but not in 
public. A transcript of all testimony given before me was 
forwarded daily to the District Attorney and to the State Fire 
Marshal . 

I submit herewith various diagrams, descriptions, findings 
and recommendations as outlined in the following index. 

Yours very truly, 





Fire Commissioner.

DESCRIPTION OF PREMISES. 

The Cocoanut Grove was a night club. It occupied approximately 10,250 .square 
feet and was open only during the evening hours, during which hours food and liquor 
were served and an entertainment program offered. The restaurant license permitting 
the sale of food and alcoholic beverages on the premises had been issued by the Boston 
Licensing Board. The application for the license for the year 1942 stated that the 
premises contained 100 tables, 400 chairs and 30 fixed stools. 

It had been in operation as a night club since 1927, at the same address, 17 Piedmont 
street, Boston. One previous fire was recorded as having occurred at this location, on 
November 2, 1931, but there was no loss of property or life, or any injuries recorded as 
having been caused by this fire. 

The principal structure occupied by the Cocoanut Grove was a first-class one-story 
building of reinforced concrete, erected in 1916. 

It had a frontage on Piedmont street of about seventy-five (7.5) feet. Approximately 
half of the building, on the north side, extended back through to the next street (Shawmut 
street), a distance of about ninety-two (92) feet. Adjoining the Shawmut street side of the 
principal first-class structure were two second-class buildings, Nos. 4 and li Shawmut 
street. Adjoining these second-class buildings, on the north, was still another second- 
class building facing Broadway. On the first floor of this building facing Broadway was 
located the room described as the Broadway Lounge. This room had been newly built 
and had been opened only a short time before the night of the fire. 

The public had access to the following portions of the above-mentioned group of 
buildings : 

Street floor of first-class building (17 Piedmont street), foyer, Caricature Bar, and 
main dining room. 

Basement floor of first-class building (Melody Lounge). 

Street floor of second-class building on Broadway (Broadway Lounge). 

Eleven fire extinguishers were found on the premises after the fire, four of which 
had been obviously partly used or tipped over during the fire. The others were found 
to be unused and in good operating condition. 

PIEDMONT STREET ENTRANCE. 

The main entrance was at 17 Piedmont street, a narrow street of about twenty-one 
(21) feet in width (from curb to curb). 

The entrance door was of a revolving type recessed, from the sidewalk in a portico 
about eighteen (IS) feet wide and nine (9) feet in depth. (See photograph attached, 
taken after the fire.) 

To the left of the revolving door (as one enters from the street) was a door leading 
into the check room and office. (This door was not used the night of the fire, this section 
being used as a check room.) The window to the left of the portico was also in this coat 
room and office. 

The window to the right of the portico was one of those in the rear of the service 
bar. The basement window on the right of the portico led into the storage room of the 
basement .

FOYER. 

Inside the Piedmont street entrance was a foyer, leading from which were two coat 
rooms (one of which was also used as an office), a men's room, a women's room, and a 
telephone room. The foyer was about forty (40) feet long and twelve (12) feet wide from 
wall to wall. 

At the westerly end of the foyer (to the left upon entering from the outside of the 
building) there was a corridor leading to the stairway down to the basement Melody 
Lounge (photo, page 16). 

At the easterly end of the foyer (to the right upon entering from the outside of the 
building) was the Caricature Bar. 

The Caricature Bar was raised approximately one and one half (H) feet from the 
floor level of the foyer and was separated from the foyer by a railing. (See photograph 
attached, taken after the fire, page 15.) 

The furnishings in the foyer consisted of upholstered settees and chairs, arranged in 
a row on both sides of the room, along the walls. 

The ceiling was arched and finished in plaster. 

The walls were covered with artificial leather, stretched over the permanent concrete 
structural surfaces. A rattan material covered the walls at the entrance, from baseboard 
to a height of approximately six (6) feet above the floor. 

The flooring was of linoleum on concrete. 

A large portable electric fan was located in the corner at the end near the corridor 
to the Melody Lounge stairway. A heating unit (blower type) was located in this same 
corner and a wall- type covered radiator was nearby. 

Exits from the foyer were through the revolving door to the street; through the 
office coat room to the street (this was obstructed by a coat rack and a lock); through 
the door to the street at the end of the corridor leading to the basement Melody Lounge 
stairway (this door was locked) ; and through the other end of the lobby into the main 
dining room. 

A drawing is attached giving an outline of the structural layout of the foyer (page 9).

CARICATURE BAR SECTION. 

(Ailjiiinhiii l-'ixji-r and Main Dining limnit.) 

This area of the first-class one-story structure was occupied by a wooden bar, forty- 
eight (4S) feet long, faced with artificial leather. Bar stools were of metal, covered with 
artificial leather. On the Piedmont street side of the room was another bar, described 
as a Service Bar. 

The ceiling was of plasterboard and the walls were of wood veneer or "Masonite," 
covered with artificial leather. 

The floor was of linoleum on wood. 

A large exhaust fan, set in the end wall, expelled air out into a vacant area adjoining 
the building. 

Means of exit from this section were by the main foyer at one end, and on the main 
dining room side, and at the other end of the bar through the passageway leading to the 
Broadway Lounge. A closed balustrade, about forty (40) inches high, separated the 
Caricature Bar area from the main dining room. 

Four casement windows behind the Service Bar, against the Piedmont street wall, 
were not used as egress until the firemen opened them. These windows were in normal 
operating condition. 

A drawing is attached (page 19) to illustrate the structural layout of this area of the 
building.

THE MAIN DINING ROOM. 

The main dining room was on the north side of the first-class one-story structure 
(Shawmut street side). It occupied a square space of about sixty (60) feet by sixty (60) 
feet in dimensions. 

On the Shawmut street side a tile canopy extended in from the outside wall about 
eight (8) feet, and the floor under this canopy-covered portion was raised about six (6) 
inches above the main floor level. (A photograph, taken after the fire, is attached, showing 
the interior view of this section, page 23.) 

On the opposite side of the room was a similar terrace backing up to the Caricature 
Bar area. 

At the west end of the room there was a raised terrace about thirty-two (32) feet 
wide, twelve (12) feet deep and about two (2) feet above the main floor level. The front 
portion of this terrace was surrounded by an iron railing about thirty-six (36) inches 
high. (A photograph [interior view], taken after the fire, shows this section, page 24.) 

On the east end of the room (nearest Broadway) was an orchestra platform twenty (20) 
feet wide, ten (10) to fifteen (15) feet deep and raised about four (4) feet from the main 
floor. (A photograph, taken after the fire, shows this section, page 25.) 

The center of the room was used as a dance floor with tables and chairs around the 
outer edges. 

Entrance to the room was from the foyer at a point where the Caricature Bar ended 
on the west side. (A photograph, taken after the fire, shows this entrance from the 
foyer, page 26.) 

A service stair for waiters went clown to the basement kitchen, at the west end of 
the room near the Shawmut street wall. 

Adjoining the orchestra platform towards the Shawmut street wall was a door 
leading to a control room for electric switches, to a stairway to the basement, and to 
another door which led out to Shawmut street (this Shawmut street door was locked 
the night of the fire), and to a dressing room. 

Behind the orchestra platform and the control room was the above-mentioned 
dressing room, a telephone booth, and a stairway up to the second floor of the adjoining 
second-class building in which they were located. 

The roof over the main dining room was an automatic rolling device, which was 
usually opened up in the summertime. The ceiling, however, was covered by fabric from 
wall to wall. 

The orchestra platform was lined also with fabric on the walls and ceiling, and a 
fabric draw-curtain could be closed across the front of the platform. 

The Shawmut street wall was covered by a wood veneer concealing three plate glass 
windows. (See photograph attached, showing exterior view, taken after the fire, page 27.) 

The dance floor was of wood on concrete. 

Lighting fixtures included bulbs, located in cocoanut shells attached to six artificial 
palm trees in this room. 

Ventilating fans were located over the exit door in the center of the Shawmut street 
wall, and at the head of the stairs to the kitchen, near the terrace at the west end of the room. 

There were four exits from the main dining room; one by means of a door in the 
center of the Shawmut street wall; another by the stairs (used by waiters) to the kitchen; 
another by a door near the orchestra platform into the control room to another door to 
Shawmut street, or optionally downstairs to the part of the basement occupied by the 
heating plant; by the main entrance to the foyer, and another through the passageway 
near the orchestra platform to the Broadway Lounge. 

A drawing is attached (page 22) to illustrate the structural layout of this section of 
the building.

DRESSING ROOMS. 

In the second-class structure (Nos. 4 to 6 Shawmut street), adjoining the first-class 
building (located between the main dining room and the Broadway Lounge), on the 
second and third floors, were located the dressing rooms used by entertainers employed 
at the Cocoanut Grove. 

Entrance to these rooms was from a door leading from the main dining room near 
the orchestra platform (on the Shawmut street side), or from Shawmut street by a door 
at the foot of the stairway to the second and third floors. 

The dressing rooms had ordinary plaster walls, wooden floors, and plaster ceilings 
common to dwelling houses. Two or three rooms on each floor had apparently been 
combined into one large room for use by groups of entertainers. 

Furniture consisted of wooden chairs, make-up tables and lockers. 

Exit was by means of the stairway to the street or from the second floor through a 
window onto a roof. 

THE BROADWAY LOUNGE. 

This room was about forty (40) feet by forty (40) feet. It had been opened to the 
public only recently and was located in the east end of the premises on the first floor of 
a second-class building of three stories, and an attic (59 Broadway). The second floor 
of this building contained motors and a locker room for employees was on the third floor. 

The public had access only to the first floor. 

Connection with the first-class structure, containing the main dining room, was by 
means of a passageway. 

The Broadway Lounge contained a coat room, a men's room, ladies' room, a bar, 
tables and chairs. 

The walls were panelled with artificial leather attached on plywood. 

The ceiling was of a soundproof construction and fluorescent lighting fixtures were 
attached to this surface. 

The floor was of wood, covered with carpet. 

Contract for a ventilating system for this room was signed in September or October, 
1942, calling for a supply and exhaust system. 

Exits from this room were by the entrance on Broadway and by the passageway in 
the rear of the room leading to the main dining room. 

Windows on the Broadway side were of fixed glass block construction. 

(Photographs are attached, taken after the fire, showing an exterior view of the 
entrance from Broadway; an interior view of the portion of the Broadway Lounge adjoin- 
ing the entrance to Broadway, and the passageway leading from the main dining room 
to the Broadway Lounge pages 31, 32, 33.) 

A drawing illustrating the structural layout of the room is attached also (page 30).

MELODY LOUNGE. 

In the basement under the foyer on the Piedmont street side was a room approxi- 
mately fifty-five (55) feet long by thirty-five (35) feet wide, called the Melody Lounge, 
designed in its present form in 193S. 

This room contained an octagonal-shaped bar with stools arranged against all front 
portions of the bar. Artificial leather was used on the front surface of the bar, and the 
seats of the stools were covered with artificial leather also. 

Tables and chairs occupied the remainder of the floor space. 

The ceiling was covered with fabric, attached to wooden strips, and suspended about 
sixteen (16) inches from the concrete structural ceiling. There was about ten (10) feet 
of head room in this Melody Lounge. 

The walls were lined with rattan and unfinished wood. 

The walls of the stairway to the first floor were similarly treated with some fish netting, 
also attached to the exterior surface. 

The floor was of tile on concrete. 

Lighting was by means of fluorescent tubing on the walls and by small light bulbs in 
cocoanut shells attached to five artificial palm trees. 

Four portable air-conditioning units were located in the four corners of this room, 
and heat was provided by means of blowers suspended from the ceiling. 

There were two exits from this room. One, by means of the stairway up to the 
first floor (the west end of the room), at the head of which stairway was located a door 
to Piedmont street. (This door was locked the night of the fire.) The other exit was by 
means of a door (used by waiters) leading to a passageway to the kitchen. Located in 
this passageway was a door leading to an outside alleyway. (This door was locked the 
night of the fire.) Use of the passageway to the kitchen, however, led to exits from that 
room. 

A photograph is attached showing the door to the street at the head of the stairway 
to the first floor from the Melody Lounge (page 37). 

Also a photograph is attached showing the northwest corner of the Melody Lounge, 
in which the fire started. (Note the small amount of burning which took place at this 
location, page 38.) 

A drawing is likewise attached to illustrate the structural layout of this room (page 36).

KITCHEN AND HEATING PLANT. 

The kitchen, in the basement, approximately thirty-four (34) feet by sixty-three 
feet in size, adjoined the Melody Lounge, on the north side (Shawmut street). It 
contained equipment commonly found in such rooms, namely, .stores, sinks, refrigerators 
and pantries. 

It was an unfinished room with concrete floor, walls and ceiling. 

Exits were by means of a stairway to the main dining room and by the door into the 
passageway, and into the adjoining room occupied by the heating plant, which had an 
exit to Shawmut street, called the service door. 

The heating plant was contained in a room approximately sixteen (16) feet by forty (40) 
feet in size, on the Shawmut street side. It adjoined the kitchen and its contents consisted 
of a furnace, fired by oil from two 275-gallon storage tanks. 

Another section of the basement (on the Piedmont street side) adjoined the kitchen 
and the Melody Lounge, and was used as a storage vault. 

A drawing is attached illustrating the structural layout of this portion of the basement 
(page 41).

DESCRIPTION OF THE FIRE. 

The fire originated in the Melody Lounge, the basement room contained in the fir-t- 
class structure. It was first seen burning in a palm tree and in the suspended cloth fal-e 
ceiling in the northwest corner of that room. (The corner one would face upon detruding 
the stairway from the foyer and turning to the left slightly more than one-quarter turn. 

The fire immediately spread throughout the Melody Lounge, along the underside of 
the false ceiling. It readied and ascended the stairway and passed thence through a 
connecting corridor into the foyer located on the street floor of the main first -class st ructure. 
Thence the fire proceeded the length of the foyer past the main entrance to the premier-, 
and traversed the length of the area containing the Caricature Bar, which area was struc- 
turally a continuation of the foyer. From this area, or from the foyer itself, the fire spread 
to the main dining room. Ultimately the fire passed from the street floor of the first-class 
structure into the Broadway Lounge. 

Flame appeared in the street floor lobby within two to four minutes after it was first 
seen in the basement room, and within five minutes entirely traversed the street floor of 
the main building and had passed to the entrance to the Broadway Lounge. 

As the fire rushed up the stairway leading from the Melody Lounge it traveled near 
the ceiling and above the heads of persons ascending the stairs to make their way out of the 
building. Some of these persons later testified before me that they threw their coats 
over their heads to protect themselves against the fire as they ascended the stairway. 

When the flame appeared in the street floor lobby it was described as traveling rapidly 
as a "ball of fire" below the ceiling. Many witnesses described the flame as of yellowish 
or bluish color. As it traveled through the lobby toward the Caricature Bar it was soon 
followed by a thick cloud of smoke. As the flame traveled through the lobby, a number of 
persons attempting to make their way out of the building sustained burns about the head, 
and in a number of cases the hair of persons in the lobby became ignited. Upon reaching 
the main dining room, the flame, moving rapidly, swept high about the room near the 
ceiling, shortly followed by a cloud of dense smoke described by witnesses ;is acrid. As it 
passed into the Broadway Lounge the fire was traveling near the ceiling. 

As the fire spread rapidly from the lobby into the main dining room, a number of 
persons were caused to collapse. Others voluntarily dropped on their hands and knees 
to the floor and crawled in that manner to the door on the Shawmut street side. Still other 
persons who were in the Melody Lounge at the time the fire broke out remained there 
until there was no longer any flame in that room, and later found their way to the exits on 
the street floor. 

Until such time as they were brought under control, the flames poured out of the 
exits on Piedmont street, Shawmut street and Broadway. It was at these exits as well 
as in the low passageway leading from the Caricature Bar to the Broadway Lounge where 
the bodies of many of the patrons were found piled up. 

CAUSES OF THE RAPID SPREAD OF THE FIRE. 

Plainly a large and extremely hot volume of burning material, largely gaseous in 
form, appeared at the top of the stairway leading from the Melody Lounge to the street 
floor within two to four minutes of the first appearance of flame in the basement room. 
The tangible material contained in that room, and actually burned, consisted principally 
of the cloth false ceiling, bamboo and rattan. Much of the doth, rattan and bamboo 
contained in the Melody Lounge, and on the sides and lower walls of the stairway lead- 
ing therefrom, was, in fact, not burned at all, and the same is true of the carpet on the 
stairway, contrary to all usual lire experience. 

(43) 



I find that a major part of the great volume of burning gas projected to the first 
floor consisted of carbon monoxide gas. This gas had arisen as a by-product of the fire, 
burning with deficiency of oxygen in the low-studded basement room. The cloth false 
ceiling was tacked to wooden members attached to the underside of reinforced concrete 
beams in such a manner that there remained a dead space of sixteen inches between the 
actual ceiling and the false ceiling with a deficiency of oxygen in this dead space. Under 
such conditions combustion of th? cloth was incomplete, and occurred largely on its 
underside where oxygen was available. 

Products of such incomplete combustion, including monoxide, will themselves burn 
further as soon as additional oxygen is encountered. Furthermore, under the conditions 
prevailing in the basement room, there was no ready outlet for the heat generated by 
such partial combustion as took place. Such heat, therefore, increased both the tem- 
perature and the pressure of the partially burned gases, and acted to drive them forcefully 
to the nearest available outlet. 

The rapidity with which the partially burned gases moved from the basement room is 
indicated by the fact that many of the wooden strips upon which the cloth ceiling was 
tacked remained substantially untouched by the fire. Some of the cloth itself remained 
unharmed. I have already referred to the fact that some persons remained on the floor 
of the Melody Lounge and later (after the fire had been brought under control on the 
street floor) escaped up the stairway and through the street floor exits. 

The fire did not burn itself out in the Melody Lounge primarily because in that 
confined space it lacked sufficient oxygen for complete combustion, and lacked also ade- 
quate means for dissipation of heat produced by the partial combustion which took 
place. Instead, it projected a large quantity of extremely hot, partially burned but still 
inflammable, gases toward and up the stairway. 

Such a movement was accelerated by a cause independent of those already con- 
sidered. Comparatively narrow (four (4) feet) and rising sharply, the stairway acted 
like a chimney, adding a draft of suction to the pressure generated in the room below 
by heat. Such effect appears to have been very considerable, since it drew out the flame 
entirely, leaving unconsumed the wood and cloth material already referred to. 

In the stairway itself a further acceleration of the process occurred. Here the par- 
tially burned hot gas was rapidly mixed and churned with a considerable volume of air 
contained in the stairway itself. The further combustion resulting increased the tem- 
perature and rapidity of flow of the mass. I have already referred to the fact that much 
of the lower wall covering, and the carpeting, was unburned. This is a further indication 
of the high elevation of the fire and the rapidity of its flow. 

The burning mass passed from the top of the stairway into a narrow connecting 
corridor and thence to the street floor foyer. The wall coverings of the foyer, consisting 
of artificial leather on cotton batting on concrete, which would be unaffected by ordinary 
flame such as that from a match, did not withstand this blast of superheated burning 
gas. The burning and decomposition of such wall coverings once again producing mate- 
rial largely gaseous, capable of further combustion and of very rapid movement, aug- 
mented the blast coming from the basement. Here again it is significant that much of 
this material on the lower part of the walls remained unburned. 

At this point the only available direction of expansion for the hot, expanding mass 
was down the length of the foyer. Its progress in that direction appears to have been 
accelerated by a large ventilating exhaust fan placed over the further end of the Caricature 
Bar, acting to draw air from the foyer along the length of the room containing the Cari- 
cature Bar. Such fan had the effect of increasing the chimney effect of the stairway 
already referred to. 

(44) 



The great mass of compressed partially-burned gases spread al once into the main 
dining room on the street floor of the first-class building, and into the Broadway Lounge 
on the street floor of the second-class building at 5!) Broadway. 

In the intense heat which resulted from the progres.- of I lie fire, decomposition of 
practically all combustible material in certain portions of the building resulted. In other 
sections little burning occurred and in these sections it is safe to assume the majority of 
persons who escaped were located. 

If all the exits had been open, obviously more people would have gotten out of the 
building alive, and there would have been less retention of gases, heat and fire in the 
building. But even then many casualties would still have resulted, as fire and person < 
would still have had to rely upon the same means of egress. 

As far as the Melody Lounge is concerned, if this had been a higher studded room, 
even though the fabric false ceiling burned completely, with a large crowd present in the 
room there would not have resulted such a compression of ga>es, heat and fire. 

FIRE DEPARTMENT OPERATIONS. 

At 10.1") p. m., on November 2S, 1<)42, an alarm was received at Fire Alarm Head- 
quarters from Box 1514, situated at Stuart and Carver streets. At the time of I his alarm, and 
Subsequently, the weather was clear and cold, the temperature being slightly below freezing 
(28.1 degrees), and the air being very dry. When the apparatus which had responded 
to the alarm arrived at the box a small fire was found in an automobile at the corner of 
Stuart street and Broadway. This fire was quickly extinguished and the firemen were 
about, to return to their quarters when their attention was called to smoke emanating 
from the Cocoanut Grove a few doors away. Upon their arrival at the entrance to the 
Broadway Lounge on Broadway, they found a number of persons leaving the premises 
amidst cries of "fire." The chief in charge of^the companies present, immediately ordered 
a ''third alarm 1 ' to lie sounded from Box 1521, which alarm was received at Fire Alarm 
Headquarters at 10.23 p. in. An alarm had been given by some civilian earlier and was 
received at Headquarters at 10.20 p. m. When it became apparent to the chief in charge 
that the immediate problem was one of rescue, he ordered a "fourth alarm" which was 
received at 10.24 p. m. A "fifth alarm" was received at Headquarters at 11.02 p. in. 

Upon reaching the night club premises, rescue work was immediately begun by the 
firemen who had responded to the automobile fire. To facilitate this work, hose lines 
were introduced to reduce the intense heat. Shortly after the firemen gained entrance 
to the premises the fire was controlled and the intense heat was abated. 

The apparatus responding to the five alarms was comprised of twenty-five engine 
companies, five ladder companies, one water tower, one rescue company and other emer- 
gency apparatus. The first water delivered on the fire was through the door of the Broad- 
way Lounge on Broadway, by the companies who had discovered the fire while engaged 
at the small fire in the automobile at Stuart street. Subsequently, water lines were 
operated on Piedmont street, Broadway and Shawmut street. Hose lines were intro- 
duced through windows and doors of the main building to the first floor, by way of the 
Shawmut street entrance to the kitchen, and through the Piedmont street entrances to 
the Melody Lounge. Ladders were raised on Piedmont street. Shawmut street and 
Broadway, and vents were opened to permit egress for the fire as well as to provide access 
for hose streams. In all, eighteen streams were operated for the purpose of quickly cool- 
ing the areas to facilitate prompt rescue work. 

CIVILIAN AND OTHER COOPERATION. 

Soon after the first alarm Mayor Maurice ./. Tobin arrived at the scene of the fire. 
accompanied by the Fire Commissioner and the Building ( 'ommi>sioner. The Police 

(45) 



Commissioner and the Superintendent of Police were already on the scene, having re- 
sponded from Police Headquarters a few blocks away. The State Fire Marshal and the 
Acting Commissioner of Public Safety, John F. Stokes, were promptly upon the scene, 
as was the Director of the Boston Committee on Public Safety, Mr. John J. Walsh, who 
was inside the premises when the fire started and who proved to be a most reliable witness 
as to what occurred inside the building when the fire broke out. 

Mayor Tobin directed the organization of all agencies outside of the building, 
including the Civilian Defense units, the Red Cross and Salvation Army, and arranged 
for accommodations in the various hospitals in the metropolitan area. 

The assistance of the many agencies which responded to this fire was of incalculable 
value. No one can measure sufficiently the amount of merit due to members of the 
United States Army, the United States Navy, the Coast Guard and members of the 
Civilian Defense units; nor can the value of the accommodations provided by nearby 
hotels and hospitals, transportation provided by taxicabs, the treatment and handling 
by various doctors and nurses connected with hospitals and various emergency first-aid 
stations, be adequately described. The officials at the City Morgue likewise rendered 
sympathetic service and the acts of many members of the clergy were no less heroic than 
the acts performed by the firemen themselves. 

The Police Department provided ambulance service, maintained law and order 
in the vicinity, roped off streets, and provided routes for emergency vehicles to function 
in carrying off the injured and dead to points remote from the scene. 

Stretcher bearers, made up of Red Cross workers, other civilians and service men, 
remained throughout the night performing their functions efficiently. Nearby holds 
provided blankets and extra supplies required in the care of victims. Neighboring 
buildings were opened and the owners or occupants made available every facility for 
the sheltering of those affected by or serving at the fire. Military police aided local 
police in countless ways. 

Ambulances, doctors and nurses, responded from miles around, offering an inspiring 
testimonial of cooperation and sympathy in the handling of victims of the fire, and in 
the furnishing of information to relatives and friends of persons reported to have been 
on the premises. 

Out-of-town fire departments from neighboring communities responded voluntarily 
and likewise rendered great assistance throughout all operations at the scene. 

CAUSES OF LOSS OF LIFE. 

At the time when the fire was first seen there were approximately one thousand 
persons on the premises. A show was about to be commenced on the stage situated 
in the main dining room on the street floor of the first-class building. 

While it is not clear that the electrical system was completely disrupted, most of 
the lights on the premises became extinguished immediately upon appearance of the fire. 
This fact, coupled with the appearance of smoke and flame and the cries of "fire," pro- 
duced great confusion among the persons present on the premises. Apart from testimony 
of many witnesses, this fact was made apparent by the presence of overturned tallies 
and chairs. 

A considerable number of deaths was caused by the fact that the door opening on 
Piedmont street, at the top of the stairway from the Melody Lounge, could not be opened 
by persons who ascended the stairway from that room after the fire was first seen. 
Although this door was provided with a so-called panic lock, such installation was rendered 
useless by the existence of another lock which was found in a locked position. 

(46) 



Further deaths were caused by the fact I hat members of (lie pulilic \vere unfamiliar 
\villi the location of the<exits. The effect of this fact was, of course, accentuated by tlie 
failure of the lights. Its effect is further shown by the fact that many of the employers, 
familiar with the arrangement of the premises, succeeded in making their way out of 
the premises both through exits normally open to the public and through others leading 
from the kitchen and dressing rooms. Some members of the public also made use of the 
lat ter exits. 

I find, however, that the great part of the deaths which actually resulted are not 
attributable to the factors just set forth. I have been led 1<> this conclusion by several 
considerations. 

Persons who actually escaped from the premises may be divided into three classes. 
A number of persons escaped through available exits on the street floor before the Maine 
actually reached such exits. A smaller number of persons escaped through such exits 
after the flame had reached them and had subsequently been beaten away or extinguished 
by operations of the Fire Department. Some of these persons, who lay on the floor of the 
Melody Lounge until the fire passed from that room up to the street floor, and who subse- 
quently escaped up the stairway and through street floor exits, I have referred to above. 
A third class of persons escaped through exits leading from the kitchen, and through win- 
dows, which exits and windows were never at any time reached by the flame. 

Those who escaped, therefore, passed through available exits at a time when no flame 
was so passing. Such escape was not possible with respect to most of the open exits once 
the fire had spread throughout the first floor. As I have found above, the substance of 
the fire was a highly-heated, partially burned but still burning, compressed volume of gas. 
By its nature this gas pressed for every available opening, and I have found that this was 
the cause of its rapid course throughout the premises. The same factors caused it to 
press rapidly towards exits, and to pour through such exits to the outer air. 

I find, therefore, that within two to five minutes of the first appearance of the fire 
most of the possible exits, including all exits normally open to the public, were useless. 
Pouring of fire through such exits made it impossible for humans to pass simultaneously 
through these exits safely. In the course of such pouring, the mass of burning gaseous 
material appears to have been depressed from its high elevation within the premises in 
order to pass through the exits. The finding of bodies piled up at many of the exits is 
attributable to this fact. These persons in attempting to pass through the exits were 
overcome by the great heat of the gaseous material pouring through them at the same 
time. To the same cause must be set down the bodies found in the passageway in the 
corridor at the head of the stairway leading from the Melody Lounge. In pouring through 
these low-ceilinged passageways the mass of gaseous material passed so close to such per- 
sons as to overcome them. 

The findings I have just made apply to the revolving door on Piedmont street. Some 
few persons, including persons coming from the Melody Lounge in the basement, passed 
through this door before the mass of flame actually reached it.. The door appears then 
to have jammed. I find, however, that there was a very great pouring of flame through 
this exit, the volume of which was made plain by the charred condition of the stucco ex- 
terior of the building at this point. Apart from jamming, (his door could not. by reason 
of such pouring of fire, have served as an available exit, once the mass of fire and flaming 
gas had reached it, which was within two or four minutes from the first appearance of the 
fire in the basement room. In this connection I find that the great majority of person- on 
the street floor had no warning of the fire until flames actually appeared in the lobby. 

I find, therefore, that the principal cause of the large loss () f life was the extremely 
rapid spread of the fire throughout the premises, and the partial pouring of the fire through 

(47) 



most of the available exits, including all exits normally open to the public. Such rapid 
spread and pouring of fire was attributable to the peculiar gaseous nature of the fire, and 
the high temperature and the pressure of the gaseous material. 

Persons unable to escape through the exit doors were thus exposed to the effects of 
the carbon monoxide gas, the superheated air, or the flames themselves, in various parts 
of the building. 

The death certificates signed by the Medical Examiners further bear out these con- 
clusions, as do the hospital records describing the appearance and condition of victims 
treated. 

CAUSE OF THE FIRE. 

From all the evidence before me I am unable to determine the original cause or causes 
of this fire. 

I find no evidence of incendiarism. 

A bus boy, aged sixteen, employed by the Cocoanut Grove on the night of the fire, 
testified to lighting a match in the process of replacing an electric light bulb in the corner 
of the Melody Lounge, where the fire started, and dropping the match to the floor and 
stepping upon it. After a careful study of all the evidence, and an analysis of all the 
facts presented before me, I am unable to find the conduct of this boy was the cause of 
the fire. 

I have investigated and carefully considered, as possible causes of the fire, the following 
suggested possibilities: Alcoholic fumes, inflammable insecticides, motion picture film 
scraps, electrical wiring, gasoline or fuel oil fumes, refrigerant gases, flame-proofing chemi- 
cals. There is no evidence before me to support a finding that any of these or any com- 
bination of them caused this fire. 

This fire will be entered in the records of this department as being of unknown origin. 

EXTENT OF PROPERTY DAMAGE. 

The fire conditions alone, while fatal to many of the occupants, were at no time of 
sufficient size to challenge the resources of the Fire Department after response to the 
alarm. 

Rescue work was the first object of the responding fire companies. Had the building 
been unoccupied the fire could have been extinguished even more promptly than it was. 
The extent of damage to the building and material contents, therefore, was perhaps 
greater than it would have been under ordinary circumstances. It was a quick-burning 
fire, which expended itself soon after the firemen attacked it; but certain portions of the 
building (the roof structure, for example) burned for a longer time than would have been 
the case under different conditions. 

The insured loss amounted to an estimated $122,500, as follows: 

On buildings . $60,000 00 

On contents . . 60,000 00 

Exposure loss, 6 Shawmut street . 2,50000 

$122,500 (Mi 
Kstimated loss on contents, not insured $12,000 00 

RECOMMENDATIONS. 

From every tragedy of the magnitude of the Cocoanut Grove fire lessons are learned 
by safety authorities, as well as by the public at large, concerning conditions giving rise 

(48) 



(o al)noi-nially great hazards not previously fully recognized. Sonic of (lie mailers upon 
which attention was focused by t lie ( 'ocoaiiut ( Irovc fire have already received I he at tent ion 
of the (leneral Court. Comprehensive legislation passed in 1043 defined lor the first 
time a "place of assembly," and enacted stringent requirement- to govern thl- type uf 
occupancy, among them being the re(iuirement of a certificate of safety for each such 
structure, specifying the maximum number of persons to be admitted, and a prohibition 
of the use of revolving doors therein. Pursuant to a resolve of the same session, other 
allied questions have been referred to a committee appointed to make a thoroughgoing 
study of all matters relating to the safety of the public in "places of assembly. " 

It seems proper to set out, for the consideration of the committee referred to, certain 
matters which have come to my attention in the course of my investigation. The advis- 
ability of enacting into law the requirements set forth below warrants serious attention 
and consideration by those charged with the duty of recommending legislation. 

1. Installation of automatic sprinklers in any room occupied as a restaurant, night 
club, or place of entertainment. 

1*. Prohibition of the use of basement rooms as places of assembly, unless provision 
is made for at least two direct means of access to the street with installation of metal- 
covered automatic closing fire doors being required in any passage existing between base- 
ment room and first floor. 

3. Requirement of defined aisle space between tables in restaurants, such tables 
to be firmly affixed to the floor to prevent upsetting and obstruction of means of egress. 

4. Exit doors in places of assembly to have so-called panic locks and no others. 
Such exits to be marked by illuminated "KXIT" signs with the minimum candle power 
to be specified in the law, and supplied by an electrical system. Such system might also 
be permitted to serve a few recessed or box-type fixtures, for emergency use as guide 
lights in the event of failure of the main lighting system. 

5. Absolute prohibition of any fabric or material containing pyroxylin in places of 
assembly. 

(i. Absolute prohibition in any place of assembly of the use of any suspended cloth 
false ceiling. 

7. Window openings of sufficient area, equipped with louvers secured by a fusible 
link so as to open automatically when subjected to heat, for the purpose of drawing off 
flames or gases, should be required in basement rooms used as places of public assembly. 
A major lesson of this fire is that persons and fire must be provided with separate means 
of exit. The law already requires the installation of vents above stages in theater-. 
See General Laws (Ter. I'M.), chapter 143, section L'7: Boston Building Code, section 30!). 
Whatever may be the width of exits, lives of persons remain in jeopardy so long as flame 
is allowed to escape through such exits. Stairways, particularly, in the absence of such 
vents, become chimneys for the flame. This recommendation is in line with a basic 
principle of firefighting the immediate creation of vents in the roof of a burning 
structure in order to allow the flame to escape upward out of the building. 

In connection with this suggestion, I feel that the committee might properly consider 
the need of securing a comprehensive scientific investigation to determine the effect of 
the ventilation characteristics of buildings as influences upon the :-preading of tire, cover- 
ing not only the characteristics of physical structure arrangement of rooms, corridors, 
stairways and the like but also the effect of ventilating machinery in connection there- 
with. While it is evident, from the findings above made, that cau-es of thi< type were 
of paramount importance in the rapid spreading of this tire, specific remedial measures. 
including the last suggested above for the consideration of the committee, cannot in my 
opinion be adequately formulated in the absence of such a scientific investigation.
