Part two of two - No event has impacted the city of Worcester more in the last 21 years than the Worcester Cold Storage Warehouse Fire. It showed what the city and its people are made of. On December 3, 1999, a fire broke out at an abandoned warehouse at 266 Franklin Street in Worcester, Massachusetts - a massive, six story windowless concrete box of a structure. Its maze-like design proved to be deadly.

The fire raged undetected for nearly two hours. More than 25 firefighters went in to fight it back. Six of those men didn't make it out. The Worcester Six: Paul Brotherton, Jeremiah Lucey,  Thomas Spencer, Timothy Jackson, James Lyons, and Joseph McGuirk.

Thomas Levesque and Julie Barnes set the deadly fire. But could they be held responsible?

And what is the legacy these six men left for the city? I will tell you.
