VIDEO: 114 years ago, Pennsylvania experienced one of its worst tragedies.
"Every fire will change the lives of the people, who they are related to, people that knew them," said Luann Zambanini with the Boyertown Area Historical Society.
On Sunday, the Boyertown Area Historical Society commemorated a fatal fire that happened at the Rhoads Opera House in 1908. That fire left 170 play-goers dead. The play was about the Scottish Reformation and would be watched by 340 playgoers that cold January night.
Audience members started hearing a hissing noise, and that's when things took a turn. While investigating the sound, someone backstage pulled the curtain back and hit a kerosene foot lamp, which set the curtain on fire. That's when the deadly explosion erupted.

Nearly a dozen Philadelphia first responders walked the streets on Saturday night to save lives.
Lisa Forrest is battalion chief for the Philadelphia Fire Department and president of the organization Club Valiants.
She and others distributed smoke alarms and taught residents about fire safety.
"A lot of times people think they can't have a fire, 'it's not going to happen to me,'" said Forrest. "So we're saying it can happen to you, and not only do you need to have smoke alarms that need to be working, but you also need to have that home escape plan so if you do have a fire, make sure you can get out."
This comes on the heels of the devastating apartment fire in Fairmount that killed 12 people, including nine children.
The tragedy motivated members of Club Valiants to hand out smoke alarms as part of a 12-day fire safety campaign in honor of the 12 victims.
