GREAT WHITE Nightclub Fire Survivor Talks About Her New Book

February 20, 2010

On February 20, 2003, nearly 500 people filled a small rock club in West Warwick, Rhode Island to see the California rock band GREAT WHITE. During the performance, a pyrotechnic display ignited a fire that quickly engulfed the interior. The incident became the fourth deadliest fire in U.S. history, killing 100 and injuring hundreds more.

Gina Russo was one of the survivors. She woke from a long coma to learn of the devastation that claimed her fiancée. She would endure months of physical therapy and carry psychological scars that would test her spirit. This is the story of how one woman found strength and hope rise "From the Ashes".

Despite so much personal loss in the national tragedy that was The Station Fire, Gina Russo offers readers an emotional story of hope and triumph that will amaze and inspire.

Aninterview with Russo conducted by Fox Providence's "The Rhode Show" can be viewed below.
