Documents in The Station Tragedy

Now that Rhode Island's criminal investigation of the tragic fire at The Station nightclub several years ago is complete, investigators have released (AP story by Eric Tucker) several thousand pages of documents, with many more apparently yet to come.  Among the new batch is a statement from the fire inspector who said he didn't notice the flammable foam because he was distracted by various other fire hazards, including the re-installation of an inward-opening door he had previously ordered removed.

The documents will, no doubt, be a major part of the pending civil suits.  I've previously posted an overview and an update after the criminal pleas.
