Excerpt

Gardenville had never experienced anything like the night of November
27. At 7:00 P.M. the main water line burst under Duggal Street, and
the basements of many of Gardenville's shops and homes quickly began to
fill with freezing water. At 9:00 P.M. a fire broke out during the second shift
at the factory, which was located just on the edge of town where many of
the town's Mexican immigrants worked. Most of the volunteer fire depart
ment was downtown blocking off streets and helping the utility crews when
the call came in about the fire. Half the firefighters were sent over to the
factory, and a call for assistance was made to neighboring towns.

Dan Roskobev was one of the first to arrive at the factory. In his twelve
years on the first aid squad he had never seen such confusion. The fire was
blazing out of the upper windows on the east side of the building. People
were milling about in the 20-degree temperatures many without coats.
Some people looked hurt and were bent over, crying. Others were calling
out in Spanish for someone to help the workers who might still be in the
factory. Everyone seemed stunned.
