Big fire in a night club, 14 people killed and dozens more injured, details revealed

Big fire in a night club, 14 people killed and dozens more injured, details

At least 14 people were killed and about 40 others injured after a fire ripped through a nightclub in Thailand's southeastern Chonburi province.

The fire broke out at 1 a.m. local time on Friday in Sattahip district, police said.

Footage shows people screaming as they flee, some with their clothes on fire.

The cause of the fire is not clear, but rescue teams say flammable materials in the walls may have made it worse.

The site in Chonburi, a province located 150 km (90 miles) south of Bangkok, was a one-story compound measuring 4,800 square meters (51,660 square feet).

Firefighters battled for more than two hours to bring the blaze under control, local media reported. The fire apparently broke out during a live music performance at the venue, according to the mother of one of the performers who died in the incident.

The bodies of the victims were mostly found near the entrance and in the bathroom. Others were found near the DJ booth.

So far, all those who died are believed to be Thai nationals.

Thai Prime Minister Prayuth Chan-ocha on Friday ordered an investigation into the fire and said the victims' families would receive help from the authorities. He also called on entertainment venues across the country to ensure they have adequate emergency exits and safety measures in place.

Officials said the venue had been converted from a restaurant to a nightclub and was likely operating without a license.

This is not the first time a deadly fire has broken out in a nightclub in Thailand.

In 2009, more than 60 people died in Bangkok after a fire broke out at the Santika club in the early hours of New Year's Day. Two men, including the club's owner, were jailed in 2011.

And a fire at a nightclub in the popular Thai tourist destination of Phuket in 2012 killed four people and injured many others.
