(NECN: Jackie Bruno, West Warwick, R.I.) - Wednesday marked a somber day for Rhode Islanders, as it honored the lives lost in the Station nighclub fire 10 years ago.

The fire, which claimed the lives of 100 people, is considered the fourth deadliest fire in U.S. history.

During a live show featuring Great White on Feb. 20, 2003, pyrotechnics spaked a massive and quickly-growing blaze.

The flames spread quickly and many victims were left trapped inside.

Ten years later, the slow process to build a memorial at the site continues.

NECN Reporter Jackie Bruno spoke with Dave Kane, father of the youngest victim, Nick O'Neill. Watch the attached video for more.
