Station Nightclub Fined Close to $100K

Six months after the Station nightclub fire killed 100 people in West Warwick, Rhode Island, and injured hundreds more, the federal Occupational Safety and Health Administration fined the club’s owners nearly $100,000, and Great White, the band whose pyrotechnics ignited the February 20th blaze was fined $7,000.

Station owners Michael and Jeffrey Derderian were cited for one “willful” violation — installing an exit door that opened in — and six “serious,” including covering the walls with flammable foam for soundproofing.

Great White’s guitarist Ty Longley was among those who died in the fire.
