The party, dubbed the “Rave Cave” with EDM performers there like Golden Donna, was interrupted at about 11:30 pm last night when the fire started and spread.

And concertgoers at the party and around the scene have been sharing photos and videos themselves, to let loved ones know they made it out of the fire, or to inform people they are searching for those still unaccounted (below):

So, so sad.

For now, with at least nine confirmed dead and many more updates no doubt coming, this is a very tragic story.

Our thoughts are with all those involved, and the families, friends, and loved ones of those killed.
