Patient’s Death Raises Toll in Club Fire to 99

From Times Wire Reports

The death toll in last month’s fire at the Station nightclub rose by one to 99, when Mitchell Shubert, 39, died of his injuries.

Shubert was a construction superintendent from Newberry, Fla., who had gone to Rhode Island to visit friends and family, his teenage daughter said.

A grand jury is investigating whether criminal charges should be filed in the West Warwick fire, which also injured nearly 190 people, 19 of whom are still in critical condition. Ninety-six people died the night of the fire, and three have since died at hospitals.
