History of Hampden - The Fire at Paradise Pavilion

A continuation of the History of Hampden talks.  The Fire at Paradise Pavilion.  In 1933 in East Hampden, a fire erupts in freezing conditions at a dance hall during a dance marathon.  Two hours later, the building is gone.  Four are dead.  Did Maine’s Blue Laws prevent the deaths of hundreds or even thousands?
