On February 20, 2003, one of the deadliest fires in American history took place at the Station Nightclub in West Warwick, Rhode Island. The pandemonium started when the band Great White's pyrotechnics ignited the nightclub, killing 100 people and devastating the lives of hundreds more.
My guest tonight is bestselling author and three-time Emmy Award-winning journalist Scott James, whose new book, Trial By Fire investigates all the central figures with firsthand accounts, interviews, and court documents.
Scott explores the rush to judgment about what happened that left the victims, their families, and a community desperate for justice.
Although the fire itself lasted minutes, the search for the truth would take years. TRIAL BY FIRE: A Devastating Tragedy, 100 Lives Lost, and a 15-Year Search for Truth with my guest Scott James.
