Pictures: 10 Years After The Station Nightclub Fire

By Matthew R. Lenczewski, Special to The Courant On the night of February 20, 2003, The Station nightclub in West Warwick, R.I., became engulfed in flames after highly flammable insulation was ignited during a rock band's pyrotechnics show. Many in the over-capacity crowd of 458 people were trapped. Along with the 100 people killed, more than 200 were injured in the fire. As we approach the 10th anniversary of one of the deadliest nightclub fires in U.S. history, we take a moment to look back at the timeline of this tragic event.Matthew R. Lenczewski
