Sao Paulo, Brazil (CNN) -- Panicked crowds pushed toward the exits as fire swept through a packed nightclub in southern Brazil early Sunday.

Hundreds didn't escape in time.

The blaze at the Kiss nightclub in Santa Maria killed at least 233 people, Brazilian Health Minister Alexandro Padilha told reporters. Many of them apparently died from smoke inhalation, state-run Agencia Brasil reported. Others were trampled in the rush for the exits, one security guard told CNN affiliate Band News.

So the building had a maximum capacity of 1000 and they had 2000 people in there, and the security guards weren't letting people leave. :hmm: And they were having a pyrotechnics show during all this.

Sounds like a plethora of bad decisions led to this.

I guess health and safety/Fire regulations weren't a big deal to that club.

Horrible thing to happen.

This is really sad because it could happen to anybody but honestly, what were they doing letting fireworks off INSIDE the building.

Reminds me of the Great White club incident that happened several years ago... around 100 people died there and the club was over-capacity as well. Sad stuff.
