The Kerns Hotel in Lansing, Michigan had 215 guests on December 11, 1934, when it caught on fire.
It left 32 people dead and 44 more people were injured.
Fourteen of those were firemen, seven were Michigan legislators, and five remained unidentified.
It is the worst fire disaster in Lansing’s history.
During the blaze, volunteers worked with the firemen to aid them. They formed an official club and named it Box 23 Club on the third anniversary of the fire.
Box 23 Club limits their members to 23, each of them pledging to support the Lansing Fire Department.
