On February 20, 2003, the deadliest rock concert in U.S. history took place at a roadhouse called The Station in West Warwick, Rhode Island.

It was actually 2 different types of foam padding glued one on top of the other. Polyurethane foam (catches fire VERY quickly) glued onto closed-cell polyethylene foam (denser, but once it does catch fire, it has a heat release rate 7x that of PU). Basically, the people who didn’t make it outside of that club within 90 seconds, died. Except for 1 survivor who was wedged in a corner underneath the pile of people trying to get out of the front door. I highly recommend reading “Killer Show: The Station Nightclub Fire, America’s Deadliest Rock Concert” by John Barylick. It’s an incredibly detailed and tragic account of the fire, the victims, the survivors and the investigation afterwards.
