Happyland, RI; Russia 2004....commonality with this fire.

Or ban fire.

I'll wager that this fire has something in common with the other nightclub fires.
Combustible interior furnishings and decorations, inadequate exits or locked exits, inadequate emergency lighting, indoor use of pyrotechnics without inspection or approval, lack of automatic sprinkler systems and a fire alarm system.
The Life Safety Code isn't enforced in a lot of foreign places. This is the result.
The death toll will climb. I wouldn't be surprised to see 300 or more.
Over 250 '.'08.
You dont need a nightclub to hunt for a doe or a buck.
The article I read said there was a similar fire in China that killed around 300!
In NYC (Brooklyn?) I think the number was around 87. The fire was started by an angry "customer" who came back with a beer bottle filled with gas and topped with a rag.
Sad day to see so many killed. Newtown was sad, too, but these dull politicians who think a murderer will be stopped by banning semi-automatic defensive weapons are lying to themselves and the public.
This would have never happened if they just reduced night club capacity to 7 people at a time.
Only on GT can a story about a deadly nightclub fire be derailed into a gun control discussion and gallows humor about the dead.
When the Station Nightclub fire happened a decade ago, I spoke to my peers about Cocoanut Grove and how it was less than 100 miles away.
I got in response. How do people not know Cocoanut Grove? Ever wonder why doors open out in these establishments? Station set new rules for fire suppression and indoor fireworks.
I am personal friends with a close relative of the owner of this building. To this day they keep their name quiet as there is still hatred for their family and they receive many threats.
Another historic tragedy. The Life Safety Code came about after the Triangle Shirtwaist Fire, and each large life loss in fires developed it into what it is today.
The factory regulations-Triangle Shirtwaist Fire
Schools-Our Lady of the Angels Fire
Assembly-Coconut Grove, Beverly Hills Supper Club, Etc
Hotels-MGM Grand Las Vegas
Haunted Houses-Six Flags New Jersey
The Life Safety Code is the code that should be enforced everywhere.
I'm sure there was an "assault" rifle somewhere on the premisis at the time, what else could've caused such a terrible, horrific tragedy!
I had CHEM I lab on the very floor the TSW, Co. occupied and the window all the women jumped from hadn't changed much, still opened and you could look straight down to the sidewalk ten stories below. Creepy, to say the least. HH
That's quite sobering.
Prayers for the victims and their families
