The Station Fire 10 Years Later

On the evening of February 20, 2003, a pyrotechnic display at the Station nightclub in West Warwick, Rhode Island, sparked a fire which killed 100 people.  After a decade, an official memorial is finally being constructed on the site.  However, one hundred crosses have donned this area as an unofficial memorial since the remnants of the charred nightclub were removed.

West Warwick is my hometown.  While I did not have any close friends who died, I know a few people who lost family members and friends.  Since then, every time I’ve visited the area and need to use Cowesett Road, I’ve driven passed those crosses.  Though a decade has passed, that night is still very present on that road.

Our thoughts and prayers go out to the families and friends of those who lost their loved ones tragically ten years ago.
