Cleveland Clinic Building on Fire

One of the first pictures to be taken after the disaster occurred at the Cleveland Clinic on May 15, 1929 at 11:30 am is captured here. Ladders were erected all around the building in an attempt to rescue any victims that were able to survive the deadly fumes. A massive group of on-lookers blocked the area for five blocks in every direction.
