Russian Nightclub Explosion; kills over 100 December 6, 2009

A nightclub explosion kills over 100 and leaves 130 critically hurt. Russian President Dmitry Medvedev on Saturday demanded the “fire code” policy to be more heavily enforced. He also called for Monday to be a day of mourning. The fire was started after the careless nightclub owners didn’t listen to authorities about the fire hazard that they were trying to produce; they started the fire. Many people were trampled, as everyone went for one exit. There were two exits, but the owners didn’t tell anyone about the second exit. The owners were fined twice previously for similar offences but continued their hazardous activity.

Amatuer video shows that the fire quickly spread as it burned the roof. This created panic, which led to so many deaths.

A similar fire started in 2003 in Rhode Island. It had a similar effect, burning the roof and creating panic between the people. That nightclub fire killed 100 people.

Big World Central sends its condolences to the families involved.  We think that there needs to be a stricter inspection policy in nightclubs all over the world so it prevents this from happening .
