Today in Detroit Fire Department History, March 3, 1909
Ten men faced death on the top floor of a three-story power building Tuesday when they were cut off from escape by fire on the lower floors.
Several of them tried to jump from the windows, but were restrained by their champions until the firemen rescued them with ladders.
All suffered smoke and heat, but none with serious results.
