At Least 232 Killed in Brazil Nighclub Fire

Not good news to wake up to.. Quite disturbing. It sounds a lot like what happened at The Station fire, the band was using pyrotechnics and acoustic insulation caught on fire and there was no emergency exit so everyone got trapped inside. http://www.guardian.co.uk/world/201...high-death-toll

Brazilian blaze? Clearly wasn't a bush-fire.

You mean the one where a washed-up eighties hair band plays crappy songs. Oh sorry, that's every one.

But seriously, when will bands learn that pyrotechnics+club=bad shit goin' down.

Holy shit, man! How did the venue get away with not having the fire exit easy to get through?

Well, problem is, they've all seen this music video and assumed that pyrotechnics in clubs was cool (fire is always cool) and a good idea (yeah, not in clubs it's not).

Because it's Brazil? Maybe their fire hazard laws aren't as well enforced or written

Apparently there was no fire exit, it says on this article but not on the Guardian. http://rt.com/news/night-fire-dead-brazil-833/

The band shot off a flare and pointed it toward the ceiling, which caught fire.

A flare? In a nightclub.

I wonder what happened to the band or if they got out. Probably not.
