Survivors, family, and friends gathered again to mark the anniversary of the 2003 nightclub fire that killed 100 people and left more than 200 others injured. More than 100 people packed the council chambers at Warwick City Hall on Sunday to remember the victims of the Station nightclub fire, which began when pyrotechnics ignited flammable foam installed as soundproofing. In a departure from the past, the remembrance was not at the West Warwick site of the Feb. 20, 2003, fire; that is closed for construction of a permanent memorial. Gina Russo, president of the Station Fire Memorial Foundation, said the memorial, estimated to cost up to $1.4 million to build and maintain, will be built despite sluggish fund-raising.
