Even in its earliest days, before the dawn of the 20th century, Butte had experienced tragedy.
Six men died in a fire in the Anaconda Mine on Nov. 23, 1889. Fire swept through the Silver Bow Mine on April 21, 1893, leaving nine dead.
But “Butte’s Night of Horror,” which occurred 125 years ago, was on an entirely different scale.
