    The Providence Board of Licenses unanimously voted to close a Rhode Island nightclub in the city for three days after four men were stabbed outside earlier this week. 

    Police say a fight broke out behind a laundromat across the street from Flow nightclub at about 1:15 a.m. Monday. Four men suffered serious but non-life threatening injuries after they were stabbed during the altercation. 

    Three of the victims were treated for their wounds and released. One remains hospitalized. 

    The board voted to close the club Monday night as police continue their investigation. A subsequent hearing has been scheduled for Thursday, where board members will discuss whether to shut down the club permanently or allow it to reopen. 

    Additional options include requiring the club to change its security procedures or hire a police detail.
