    November 28, 2017 is the 75th anniversary of the Cocoanut Grove Fire in Boston's South End, a tragedy that took 492 lives. The Grove Fire precipitated major changes in building codes, fire-fighting practices, and criminal law, and the consequences of the event still reverberate today. The Cocoanut Grove Fire is probably better known than the fire that destroyed most of Boston, and the Grove continues to fascinate people. Stories of heroism, venality, compelling personal accounts, and the ongoing debate about what caused the fire will be presented and discussed by former Hingham Fire Chief Mark Duff and Library Trustee Thomas Carey.
