Thai nightclub fire kills 14
Thailand's prime minister yesterday ordered an investigation into a massive blaze that tore through a nightclub, killing at least 14 people and injuring around 40. The fire broke out around 1:00 am at the Mountain B nightspot in Chonburi province's Sattahip district, about 150 kilometres southeast of Bangkok. Video footage posted by a rescue service showed desperate revellers fleeing the club screaming, their clothes ablaze, as a huge fire raged in the background. The victims were aged between 17 and 49 and all are believed to have been Thai.
