The owner had had all the emergency doors of the plant locked and barred to save capital. 25 workers burned alive, and 54 were injured. The owner responsible for these deaths served less than 4 years in prison.
Mojo Nixon and Jello Biafra wrote this song about it, which is found on the Prairie Home Invasion Album.
