OTD October 29 - Gothenburg fire
9 / 42

1998: The Gothenburg nightclub fire in Sweden kills 63 and injures more than 200. The fire was started by four teenagers aged 17 to 19, who were denied entry to the discothèque because of an argument. They were later convicted for gross arson and sentenced to prison terms from seven to eight years, except for the youngest, a minor aged 17 who received three years in a juvenile care facility.
