Neither Kim nor I had ever been to the site of the Station Night Club fire before today. We had Hair Nation on the radio in tribute as we drove toward the place, and as the GPS told us we were .4 miles away, sure enough, a Great White song came on. See it in the video above. Some pics below:
The sign still stands.
I don't know what this little coop is for--I thought maybe it was part of the building that remained or something but probably not since it's right in the middle.
Some people died later at the hospital--the fire was 2/20/03 and the date on the cross at left is 3/6/03, 8 years ago today.
Candles in the shape of a "100" for the number of people that died.
I've been watching the video in stunned horror. Seeing for the first time today. A sprinkler system. That's all it would have taken to avoid the misery the families are probably still going through. simply horrifying. My heart goes out to all. The victims, the families, and the entire community. Devestating. - Mike from Jersey
