This will be the story of the fire, but also will include trivia stories about other things happening on that day. Learn about everything from jazz singers to Japanese celebrations, notable deaths, international holidays, and baseball. Relive one day in the 1980's through that day's most notable events from around the world. Some days never are the same again. We will end with the story of the L.A. County Library Fire.
