BENEFITING: STATION FAMILY FUND

Brenda Cotnoir

THE STORY:

The Station nightclub fire was the fourth deadliest nightclub fire in American history, killing 100 people. The fire began at 11:07 PM EST, on Thursday, February 20, 2003, at The Station, a glam metal and rock n roll themed nightclub located at 211 Cowesett Ave. in West Warwick, Rhode Island. The fire was caused by pyrotechnics and engulfed the club in 5½ minutes. Some 230 people were injured and another 132 escaped uninjured. Video footage of the fire shows its initial growth, billowing smoke which quickly made escape impossible, and the exit blockage which further hindered evacuation.

What followed was a series of trials, both criminal and civil, a reevaluation of safety codes, and many families with lost or critically injured loved ones, including children who lost one or both of their parents.

February 20, 2011 marks the 8th anniversary of this tragic event. From their website, http://www.stationfamilyfund.org/ , "Every dollar raised by the Station Family Fund, Inc. will go directly to address the needs of the survivors and the families of victims impacted by The Station nightclub fire. Administrative and overhead expenses will be paid solely from donations solicited for this specific purpose."
