1871 - Hotel Fire Results in Bridge Disaster
A hotel at Franklin, Pa., was burned the other day, and the flames set fire to the wood work of a wire bridge over the Allegheny river, and the cables, soon becoming red hot, parted from their anchorage, precipitating the bridge structure into the river. About twenty persons were on the bridge at the time, several of whom were fatally injured.
