davidphogan: moothemagiccow: davidphogan: fusillade762: Outdoor flares fired indoors? Check

2000 people in a club with a max occupancy of 1000? Check

No sprinklers or functioning fire extinguishers? Check

Only one exit? Check

Clubs operating permit has been expired since August? Check

I certainly hope someone ends up jail for this.

More than one person. Unless maybe one person does all those jobs.

A club that small? You betcha.

One guy was the fire narwhal, bouncer, band member lighting flares, and in charge out local permits? No.


I meant fire marshal, but a fire narwhal would be awesome also.

Tribute bands can be great but they rarely bring down the house.

Maybe the fire exits were just painted on the wall?

There are about 5 in jail lat time I checked. One club owner, band manager, fire marshal who deemed the club safe, plus a few others. Some others are still on the run such as the second owner, and the band's singer who lit the fire.


And the jailor man and sailor Sam will search forevermore...

It's ok everyone, The Market says this is just fine. The club owners didn't install sprinklers because too expensive, running a business not a charity. The band didn't use indoor fireworks because too expensive, running a band not a charity. The people at the club had the right to choose not to go to a club without sprinklers. They can 'vote' with their dollars by not going to that club in the future. It will all work itself out in the marketplace.

skinink: Aside from that, the exit(s) were not clearly marked, the bouncers were originally stopping people from leaving and some exits were chained closed. Plus the whole club was a death trap in waiting.

I watched that 12 minute video of the Station fire in Rhode Island. It was so hard to watch, especially the part where the people were stacked atop each other in the doorway like a barrier, blocking anyone behind them from escaping.


Actually, as many differences as similarities with this and The Station fire.

The Station wasn't over occupancy per the fire code
The Station was being legally operated with a valid license
The emergency exits were not closed, locked or chained
There were 4 exits, all open, though the place was a hodgepodge of confusing hallways
While the Station didn't have sprinklers, the fire marshal told them they were grandfathered and didn't need them.
The Station's main error was in using the wrong insulation, and of course, even considering allowing pyro in a club that small without sprinklers.

Unlike the fire in Brazil, The Station was mostly legal. The lesson is that fire can kill FAST.
