Regarding Tragedy at the Lobohombo Disco. The fire at the Lobohombo Disco occurred on the night of October 20, 2000, in an establishment located in the San Rafael neighborhood of Mexico City. The fire left 22 people dead and 40 injured. The tragedy was made worse due to the emergency exits being closed with padlocks. Due to this tragedy, the operation of recreational businesses such as bars, discos or musical venues in Mexico City changed after the fire to reinforce the evacuation measures in case of emergencies. In the place where the disco existed, the Commander Eulalio Mújica Pérez Fire Station was built. Translated and adapted from Wikipedia
