Thailand’s nightlife scene was hit by a tragedy of historic proportions this year when an inferno tore through the Mountain B nightclub in Chon Buri province, killing 26 people and badly injuring at least 40 others.


The fire made headlines for weeks because it was among the deadliest at a night-time venue in Thai history. People who had entered the club expecting an evening of fun and entertainment instead found themselves trapped by a wall of flames and choking black smoke.


What happened?


On the night of August 4, around 100 people were partying at Mountain B – a new pub in Chon Buri’s Sattahip district – as a band played live on stage.


But their fun night out transformed into a nightmare at about 1am. Revelers noticed sparks in the ceiling, which quickly turned into flames and then raged through the interior. The entire building was gutted in a matter of minutes.
