Default Re: More than 230 dead at Brazil nightclub fire

Sounds exactly like the "Great White" fire.

"The Station nightclub fire was the fourth deadliest nightclub fire in American history, killing 100 people. The fire began at 11:07 PM EST, on Thursday, February 20, 2003, at The Station, a glam metal and rock and roll themed nightclub located at 211 Cowesett Avenue in West Warwick, Rhode Island."

"The fire was caused by pyrotechnics set off by the tour manager of the evening's headlining band, Great White, which ignited flammable sound insulation foam in the walls and ceilings surrounding the stage. "

"A fast-moving fire engulfed the club in 5 minutes. In addition to the 100 fatalities, some 230 people were injured and another 132 escaped uninjured"
