Thailand nightclub fire kills 14, injures dozens

At least 14 people were killed and around 40 others injured after a fire swept through a nightclub in Chonburi province in south-eastern Thailand.

The fire broke out at 01:00 local time on Friday at the Mountain B nightspot in Sattahip district, police said.

Footage shows people screaming as they flee, some with clothes on fire.

The cause of the fire is not clear, with rescuers saying flammable material on the walls may have exacerbated it.

The venue in Chonburi, a province located 150km south of Bangkok, was a single-storey complex measuring 4,800 square metres.

Firefighters battled for more than two hours to bring the fire under control, local media reported.

The blaze apparently broke out during a live music performance at the venue, according to the mother of one of the music performers who died in the incident.
