Station Nightclub fire resulting in 100 deaths and 206 injuries. Attorney Mark Mandell served as co-lead counsel in the Station Fire Litigation. The lawsuit arose out of the tragic fire that occurred at the Station Nightclub in West Warwick, Rhode Island on February 20, 2003. One hundred people died and hundreds of others were injured. As a result of the Station Fire, the Rhode Island State Fire Safety Law was changed and strengthened, importantly imposing new, stricter requirements concerning the installation and use of sprinklers. Signed by then-Governor Donald Carcieri on July 7, 2003, the new law was dedicated to the victims and families of the Station Nightclub fire with the express intent that “Rhode Island will never again be the place of such a tragedy.”
