Thailand club catches fire, leaving 13 dead

Friday morning in Thailand there was a fire inside a nightclub that killed several people and left others more injured, commented the rescue services responsible for saving people.

It was within the Sttahip district, in Chonburi province, just 150 kilometers south of Bangkok, and it was an official who asked to hide his identity who reported the numbers of dead and injured.

In videos shared through social networks, several people were seen leaving the place while their clothes were on fire and they screamed in desperation to want to leave the place as soon as possible.

It is reported that in total there were more than 13 dead and 40 injured by the flames that engulfed the site, although this could increase, because it took three hours to stop the fire.
