1990: A deliberately set fire in an unlicensed social club in The Bronx, New York, known as "Happy Land" kills 87 people, most of them young ethnic Hondurans celebrating Carnival. Unemployed Cuban refugee Julio González, whose former girlfriend was employed at the club, was arrested shortly after the fire and ultimately convicted of arson and murder.
