  • Cocoanut Grove Nightclub Fire Survivor Stories

Three survivors of the Cocoanut Grove nightclub fire recall their harrowing experiences during that tragic night. The Cocoanut Grove nightclub in Boston had been a popular entertainment and dinner venue since its opening in 1927. On November 28, 1942, fire broke out in the nightclub. Multiple fire code violations were found during the fire investigation, which largely contributed to intense fire and toxic smoke spread as well as the major loss of life.
