This is just so sad.

As the world mourns for 231 poor souls killed in Brazil on Sunday, local police just arrested four suspects in connection with the deadly fire.

Two nightclub owners, a member of Gurizada Fandangueira, and the band's security chief are all now in custody.

As mass burials begin today, survivors, government officials, and an entire grieving nation is still wondering how a catastrophe this horrendous is even possible.

It's assumed the fire started when a band member lit a flare on stage as part of their act, but details remain murky.

Many are outraged because the operators off Kiss allowed the Santa Maria nightclub's fire safety permit to lapse and even instructed its security team to keep all 3,000 patrons in the club until their tabs were settled.

Ugh. It's just so very heartbreaking.

Our sincerest thoughts and well-wishes continue to extend to all of those great many individuals affected by this horrific tragedy.

    the security thought there were a brawl on the club, they didn't see it was a fire till a little later, once they found out there was a fire, they started breaking some gate that was on the way and pull people out… the responsible for the fire dept said althought permits were expired, all the fire equipment was working properly, and the fire exits were fine. the problem is, people ran to the bathroom in order to run from the smoke, that's when they died, cause there were no exit, the fire consumed all the oxygen and they got intoxicated with smoke…

    I live in this world and I am not mourning this fire. Have you ever been to Brazil? There is no concern for safety or building codes in this country.

    This accident / fatality shocked all Brazilians (I'm from Brazil), but it was a neglect of the administration's NightClub Kiss admitting pyrotechnics, even not having adequate infrastructure.

    I live in the city where the accident has happened. I did not lose any close to my, but I've lost a student, because I am an English teacher. I cry myself to sleep every night and have to take pills to fall asleep. Our city is mourning and there are a lot of people with unstable health conditions because they've inhaled smoke. My mother works in one of the biggest hospitals here and she told me she has never seen anything like; according to her it was a war zone. Dead bodies on the hospital corridors because they do not have space anymore. One mother lost her four children. Couples were separated. The pain in each of us is devastating. I just came back from a parade we did, with more than 35k people. We are trying to stick together so we can get through. But the memory and the pain are too much. Hopefully, we will get better in time. I appreciate your kind words, Perez, they mean a lot to us now. From the botton of my heart, thank you.
