The State of Rhode Island and the town of West Warwick have each agreed to pay $10 million to survivors and victims’ relatives in the 2003 nightclub fire that killed 100 people. The state and the town are the last major defendants to agree to settlement offers, now totaling nearly $175 million, after the fire at the Station nightclub. Before the settlement is final, more than 300 survivors and victims’ relatives still must approve them. As you will recall, the blaze began when pyrotechnics used by the rock band Great White ignited foam used as soundproofing on the club’s walls and ceilings.
