WEST WARWICK, Rhode Island (WBZ-AM) -- Tuesday marks fifteen years since the Station Nightclub Fire, one of the deadliest nightclub fires in U.S. history.

In less than five minutes, the blaze engulfed the club, killing 100 and injuring 230 others.

A special memorial service will be held at the Station Memorial Park Tuesday afternoon. 

There, survivors will join fire officials to bring attention to a provision in the federal tax code that would allow businesses to write off the cost of installing sprinklers.

There were no sprinklers in the Station Nightclub.
