On the night of Thursday, February 20th, 2003 a tragic loss at the Station Night Club in West Warwick, Rhode Island changed the fire protection industry forever. Many know this as the "Great White" fire as the headline band for the packed evening performance was Great White. This tragic fire cost the lives of 100 dead, and 230 injured with only 132 escaping the building without injury, yet this was only the 4th deadliest night-club fire in US history. In this case, the building fire alarm was sounding within seconds of the fire starting, yet 100 died. Many lessons were learned that night that we see reflected in modern building codes. Warning: Graphic.
