WEST WARWICK, R.I. (AP) — Ten years after a nightclub fire killed 100 people in Rhode Island, the state is still marked by the blaze.

The 10th anniversary of The Station fire is Wednesday. The fire was sparked when pyrotechnics for the rock band Great White set fire to foam installed as soundproofing.

Survivors and family members of those killed say they were forever changed.

Gina Russo has undergone dozens of operations for burns but says that she has learned how to rise above obstacles and that she is now a more positive person.

Dave Kane lost his 18-year-old son. He says lessons learned from the fire can save other lives.
