R.I. Fire Investigation Deepens

Investigators in Rhode Island try to learn why last week's blaze spread so quickly inside a West Warwick nightclub, killing at least 97 patrons. The state attorney general wants answers from the club's owner. Among the issues: whether rock band Great White had permission for pyrotechnics. NPR's Tovia Smith reports.
