Fourth Anniversary Of GREAT WHITE Nightclub Fire To Be Marked Today

February 18, 2007

According to Eyewitness News WPRI, a memorial service today will mark The Station nightclub fire. Survivors of the February 20, 2003 blaze and relatives of those killed plan to gather at the fire site in West Warwick. They'll be marking the fourth anniversary of the fire.

The ceremony starts at 1:00 p.m. It will include music, a reverend's invocation and a reading of the names of the 100 people killed.

The fire began when pyrotechnics for the rock band GREAT WHITE ignited flammable soundproofing foam on the club's walls.

Last year, each of the three men charged in the fire reached plea deals — and two were sentenced to prison. In addition, the attorney general's office has released thousands of pages of witness statements, grand jury testimony and other evidence gathered in the case.
