242 Die in Kiss nightclub fire in Kiss Nightclub, 1925 Andradas Street, Sede, Santa Maria, Rio Grande do Sul, Brazil.

The fire started when the band Gurizada Fandangueira ignited fireworks during their show. The high death toll was due to the lack of emergency exits (the only access in and out of the building was the front door) and the fact that the number of people inside exceeded the maximum capacity by hundreds.
