December 13, 1977: fatal fire at Providence College

Thirty-seven years ago today a fire broke out in a dormitory at Providence College.  Ten students perished.  Back in 2010 I wrote a blog post about the fire.  Each year it gains a few more comments.  It now has 42.  Many of those who have contributed were there that night.  Others knew one or more of those who died.  Please READ the original post and all the comments.  It’s an important reminder of why fire safety must be taken seriously by everyone.
