Nightclub Fire Leaves Three Injured

According to ABC 13, a fire broke out at the iClub Nightclub located at 8320 Southwest Fwy, Houston, TX 77074. 

Firefighters responded to a fire at the nightclub at around 3 a.m. on Saturday, April 30, 2022. As they arrived they saw swarms of people rushing out of the building with heavy black smoke billowing out. Four victims were found huddled behind the bar inside the building. Many suffered from smoke inhalation and three were sent to the hospital for injuries. 

Within thirty minutes, the firefighters had the fire under control. They believe it stemmed from an unspecified electrical malfunction, noting the club's sound system as a possibility. While the fire department claimed the attendance was between 1,000 to 1,500 guests, the club managers claimed it was well below the 800 maximum occupancy regulation.

Who Can Be Held Liable For a Nightclub Fire?

Attorney Marc Lenahan has experience representing victims injured in building fires in Texas. Marc recently spoke with Legal Herald about some of the legal rights accessible to victims following such an event, as well as who can be held liable for a nightclub fire. 

"Catastrophic events, such as building fires, can lead to major injuries and death. Victims who suffered injuries may be left wondering how they will be able to afford medical bills for treatment from their injuries, such as smoke inhalation."

"When you go to a nightclub, you expect that the nightclub owner has taken necessary precautions to prevent any potentially dangerous situations, such as fires. Regular maintenance for all equipment that has been professionally installed could reduce the risk of electrical fires. The owner would also be responsible for having security at the entrance of events that enforces the maximum occupancy is not exceeded.  Severe burns and other serious fire-related injuries can be caused if a fire breaks out inside an overly crowded venue. It may be difficult to determine who may be held liable in fires at nightclubs. By speaking with an experienced attorney, victims can explore their legal options. Many times, compensation may be awarded to victims and their families."
