Memorial to open for victims of Station nightclub fire

PROVIDENCE — A ‘‘satellite memorial’’ to honor 100 people killed in a 2003 nightclub fire is scheduled to be unveiled Saturday, just weeks after a yearslong effort to secure the site of the fire for a permanent memorial finally came to fruition.

The Warwick memorial was being unveiled at 10 a.m. Saturday. It is meant to honor all victims of The Station nightclub fire, with special recognition for the 10 victims from Warwick. More residents of Warwick died in the Feb. 20, 2003, blaze in West Warwick than of any other town. First responders and survivors will also be honored.
