Fire

The Beverly Hills Supper Club.... Built in 1937 just across the Ohio River from Cincinnati and played host to celebrities and locals from its opening until 1961, when it shut its doors for the first time. Full of glamour and awe, it would never be forgotten, but for a much different reason.

Memorial Day weekend 1977 was typical - hot and humid, but this would not be a typical Saturday night outing for those visiting the Supper Club. About 2500 people were present for a night of dancing and entertainment. The first sign that anything was amiss may have come as early as 8:15 p.m. when there were complaints of heat in one of the reception rooms. It wasn't 35 minutes later that the first smell of smoke appeared and the fire raging was discovered in that reception room.

John Davidson was the main act that evening and was just waiting for the comedy act in the Cabaret Room before him to finish up, when Walter Bailey, a young busboy grabbed the mike and announced that there was a "small fire." Some thought this was part of the act and laughed, but many left and just in time, because in just two minutes at 9:02 p.m. the ferocity of the fire swept down toward the Crystal Room. The fire was so strong at this point that smoke was already pouring out through the ducts causing intense panic and 1200 people began scrambling out through three small exits. In the darkness many encountered locked doors.

The fire increased in its rage with the first bodies being pulled out at 9:45. As fire units struggled to contain it, the inferno continued to grow. Amazingly, after 11 pm, almost two hours later, five people came out of the still-burning club alive. The grim light of morning brought the realization of 162 dead; in the coming months, three more would succumb leaving the final death toll at 165.

The ultimate cause of the tragedy was blamed on substandard wiring, overcrowding, flammable building materials, and a shortage of proper exits. Although these problems had been cited before, and warnings were plenty as the club had already suffered two major fires in the previous seven years. Unfortunately the warnings were not heeded in time for those who lost their lives and loved ones. Final judgment was harsh as well....no criminal charges were ever brought against those responsible.

**HERRO, Douglas, b. 15 Oct 1949, d. May 1977; Residence - 91436 Sherman Oaks, Los Angeles, CA; Issued California 1966**

"I remember Doug as being an incredible musical director, despite his young 27 years of age. John Davidson's guitarist, Mike Anderson, had recently left the entourage to return to his home town of Iowa and then on to Phoenix AZ.. I remember the eerie feelings Mike had following the fire, knowing only too well that he could have been part of the horror. I remember Doug's sweet but serious face, the pretty "beauty" mark he had on his cheek and his incredible talent. It was a shame that any human being had to die so tragically, but for a young man such as Doug, with such an incredible life behind him , and supposedly ahead of him, the tragedy was simply awful. It has been 30 years and I still think of how this disaster could have been prevented. I still remember, as if it were yesterday, reading about Doug in the newspaper the following day----my brother's birthday....and, by the way, a friend /colleague of Doug Herro. We were all devestated and will never forget that horrific day." Memory submitted by Sandie Tancredi
