Mementoes removed from Station nightclub site


Crosses and other items are being removed at the site of a 2003 Rhode Island nightclub fire that killed 100 people, as organizers make preparations for a permanent memorial on the site.

On Saturday, members of the Station Fire Memorial Foundation removed the handmade crosses, photographs, stuffed animals, and other items that have been there since the fire on Feb. 20, 2003.

The items are being placed in a vault and will become part of the permanent memorial, scheduled to be completed next year. The foundation hopes to raise more than $1 million to build the memorial and maintain it.
