A popular local pub, Santika Club, caught fire just after midnight during the New Year countdown celebrations. Around sixty people are killed by the fire and over a hundred were hurt. Looks like their web server also crashed and burned.
The club is located just outside of my office building. So now instead of seeing club goers with their expensive cars when I'm working late, guess I'll be staring at the crater.
Update: the news has hit international circuits. CNN's report here.
