PROVIDENCE, R.I. (AP) - Survivors and relatives of the 100 people who died in a 2003 nightclub fire are pledging to work together as they try to build a memorial at the site of the club in West Warwick.

Disagreements about how to make the memorial happen in the face of a years-long impasse with the property owner spilled into public view this week as families debated whether the state should use eminent domain to seize the land.

Several affected by the fire say they hope to put aside differences to get the memorial built.

Survivor Gina Russo says it's important to come together despite disagreements. Dave Kane, whose son died, says they may differ on how to make it happen, but the important thing is they are united in wanting a memorial.
