Illegal pyrotechnics ignited acoustic foam in the wee hours of January 26, 2013 in the Kiss Nightclub in Santa Maria, Brazil. The resulting fire caused a panic, and the crush of club-goers were unable to get out due to a lack of emergency exits. 242 people died and over 600 were injured as a result of the stampede and smoke inhalation.
