Margaret Foster (cq) speaks to people gathered at The Spotted Dog--which used to house Fire Station 11--during a commemoration to mark the 60th anniversary of the Winecoff Hotel fire in downtown Atlanta. Foster, with her husband and daughter, were staying at the hotel on the night of the fire. They all survived. The fire--at 119 deaths, the worst hotel fire in U.S. history--caused departments across the country to update their fire safety codes.
