Brazil nightclub fire kills at least 245
Reuters: An early morning fire at a nightclub in southern Brazil has killed at least 245 people.
A performing band’s pyrotechnics display set the building on fire and the ensuing panic made it difficult for the estimated 500 people inside at the time to find the club’s exits.
At least one of the club’s exits was blocked, causing many to die from smoke asphyxiation.

This is why I hate the Daily News.
Let’s poke fun at this rich upper class woman for having topless pics.
But to make sure we use shots of a native woman of color breasts to make a attention grabbing, sensationalized news.
As though they need to tell her to cover up, but it’s ok for them to be exposed on an a huge new publication. The story itself is not even news.
