It's always sad when crap like this goes down.

Sadly, it's not unprecedented, and it will happen again.

What a disaster... Such a horrible occurrence.

This is like the 5th nightclub fire I've heard of that was caused by the pyrotechnics on the stage.... They really shouldn't let those things be used indoors.

So much...

Unfortunately, you're right. I'm even afraid this happens again here in Brazil, where laws can be laid off with minor consequences. See, this time the laws that have been broken included the lack of authorization of the nightclub to be working, the lack of care with the fire extinguishers and the fire exits.

I agree! Who in good mind would set up a flare so close to the ceiling?! Oh, okay that the sound insulation was flammable, but that only adds up a reason to avoid using flares indoors!

Alas, whose idea was that? Making a nightclub for 1000 people with a single 1,5 meters large door and stuff 1500 people there?

This awful combination of errors lead to the tragic fire.

An update on the numbers:
235 people deceased.
123 injured - 75 in critical state.
4 people has been arrested - 2 band members and 2 owners of the nightclub.

I just hope the people that have been sent to hospitals get better soon.
