Survivor from The Station Nightclub Fire gives a harrowing account of his escape

Last year, I interviewed Robert Feeney, a survivor from The Station Nightclub Fire in 2003, at the actual site of the blaze. The horror of that incident came flooding back to him while we were surrounded by a makeshift memorial of wooden crosses, stuffed animals, and weathered photos of some of the 100 victims who died from the fire. A decade had passed since the incident, but he remembers the details with vivid clarity.

This week marks the 11th anniversary of the fire, which is still one of the top 10 deadliest nightclub fires in U.S. history. Check out the story in NFPA Journal, and watch the video of Feeney at the site, which includes footage from the actual incident.
