Memorial Marks 30th Anniversary Of Supper Club Fire

Hundreds of people, including firefighters from as many as 20 departments, attended the memorial. The Beverly HIlls Supper Club went up in flames May 28, 1977 in one of the
deadliest nightclub fires in US history. The fire claimed 165 lives and injured dozens more.
The service was held at the foot of the long, cracked driveway that stretches up the hillside in Southgate, in Campbell County, where the club stood for more than 40 years before the fire.
A group of former employees and survivors organized the memorial to reunite people who were affected by the fire.

    This trajedy hit especially close to home as a very good friend of ours lost his dad in this fire. It is hard to believe 30 years have gone by already. What has never been hard to believe is that his dad went back to help other folks get out.

    To Margaret Ann Quirk, the reporter said, "In Southgate, KY" you must of caught another channel. If you go to the Recent newscast for the 5 and 6 you will find the reporter did not mention any County. Let alone Kenton. You should make sure to track your sources before you comment publically.
