At least 13 dead: Inferno in nightclub on Thailand's coast

A fire broke out at a popular nightclub in Thailand just after midnight. For visitors and employees, the restaurant becomes a prison from which some do not escape alive. The back door of the restaurant was locked.

At least 13 people have been killed in a devastating fire at a major nightclub on Thailand's east coast. About 40 others were injured, some seriously, the Bangkok Post newspaper reported, citing the rescue team from the local Sawang Rojana Thammasathan Foundation. Many suffered smoke inhalation, some burns. The fire broke out on Friday night (local time) in Sattahip on the Gulf of Thailand for reasons that are still unclear

All of the victims - nine men and four women - are Thais, according to the police. Videos on social media show visitors trying to escape the blaze at Mountain B Pub with just one open door. People flee and scream while the whole building is on fire in the background. The interior of the restaurant was completely destroyed, as shown by photos taken after the extinguishing work.

According to the Khaosod newspaper, many guests were trapped in the building when the fire broke out because the back exit was locked. In addition, the inside of the pub is said to have been lined with easily combustible foam panels for soundproofing. The club had just opened a few months ago. It took firefighters about three hours to bring the fire under control. The Sattahip district is around 150 kilometers south of the capital Bangkok.
