    The Colectiv nightclub fire was a deadly fire in Bucharest, Romania on October 30, 2015, killing 31 people and wounding 181. The fire, the worst such incident in Romania in the last 20 years, occurred during a free concert performed by heavy metal band Goodbye to Gravity to celebrate the release of their new album, Mantras of War. The band's pyrotechnics comprising of sparkler firework candles ignited the club's flammable polyurethane acoustic foam, and the fire expanded very quickly.


    For all nightclub owners: don't be cheap! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NEkDLTV0ZHs

    I read about that. That's messed up. And the club only had one exit. That was another reason why there were so many victims. A lot of people got trampled or suffocated from the smoke.

    I feel really bad for the families.

    I don't know man but that's seriously irresponsible of any business to only have one exit. You need at least four: one on each side of the building.

    Not only was there one exit but it was a small one at 80cm wide which is 31 1/2 inches you need a door at least double that size for a commercial venue with lots of people
