Black Club in Chaweng's nightlife area has burned, probably burned out, in the evening on December 2nd.

 

The fire should have been caused by a gas explosion – from unofficial source, guard from neighboring Central Festival – it happened before 10 pm, as we got a phone call from the CF-guard just before 10 pm, so before the opening hours for the indoor club. I saw lots of Black-staff outside, so hopefully no one is hurt, but one ambulance backed up to the entrance, onlookers were moved away by police, and the ambulance drove away little after.

 

Seems like the bars right underneath Black Club's second floor also got some damage. The were numerous fire brigade trucks, including from Samui Airport, and numerous firehoses in use. Looking at the outside metal-walls' paint, it looks like there has been high temperatur inside.

 

Some photos:

Smoke is still coming up from roof at 10:51 pm...

Looks like there has been a high temperature behind the outside metal panels (I'm no expert, so I might be wrong)...

Yes, I have been told the same by my Thai neighbour. It was on the local news (Fakebook?) One dead and one injured.

My friend tells me a close friend of the Black club owner lost his life in the fire (unsubstantiated of course). Very sad. 

As if the local entertainment sector didn't have enough problems already.

I've heard that of the partners – there should be two owners – died inside from the smoke.

 

I've heard today that two people perished in the fire, based on some Facebook posts, might be local news sources. It also said that the fire was caused by electric failure. It started on the ground and worked it's way up. The roof area was heavily burning in the photos from News Update.

 

The talk from neighboring Central Festival guards about explosion – they got so much smoke in there that they were afraid Central Festival was burning – could have been caused by smoke explosion; my speculation of course, but I often hear fire brigade people talk about that danger.

What causes a smoke explosion?
This phenomenon is known as a smoke explosion. A smoke explosion can occur when a fire starts in a closed compartment where the only ventilation is from the leakage through the compartment boundaries. The fire develops into a smouldering state and produces large quantities of excess pyrolyzates and carbon monoxide.

Sad news, did the fire spread to the sports bar next door? If it is still there.

I owe you a reply to this one.

Both the International Sport Bar next to Black entrance and neighboring Gery's Angels, which recently moved in from the other side of road, are closed. There seem to be no power in the building, and there might also be some water damage.

 

The light at the Black's entrance comes from spotlights powered by cable from neighbor, lights probably for security, Photos from Saturday night...

That's grim. Used to catch the odd game of football there when on Samui.
