At least 245 people have died due to a blazing fire at a Brazilian nightclub in the early hours of Sunday morning.

It was initially reported that 90 people died in the massive fire, but the death toll has risen throughout the morning, and the bodies keep piling up in the devastating tragedy.

Local reports have claimed that the blaze was sparked by a pyrotechnic display going wrong during a band’s performance, but an official cause of the fire has not yet been released.

There could be hundreds of other victims, as the nightclub has not been fully explored yet.

In addition to the casualties, at least 200 people have been injured in the blaze, a number that is sure to go up.

The Kiss Nightclub in Santa Maria set ablaze at approximately 2 a.m. in a horrific fashion that has shaken the entire community.

We will have more details when they are made available.
