PROVIDENCE, R.I. (AP) -- The state fire marshal is heading to Smith Hill today to attend a hearing on the fire safety code.

Fire Marshal Irving Owens will respond to questions from lawmakers on the implementation of the state�s new fire code, which was passed in the wake of The Station nightclub fire.

The commission wants to learn how business owners are coping with implementing the tighter regulations.

The 1 p.m. Statehouse hearing is open to the public.
