Four Men Arrested in Brazil Club Fire

Authorities detained Monday four men in conjunction with the deaths of more than 200 people in a nightclub fire in southern Brazil, including two of the owners of the venue and two performers whose pyrotechnics display allegedly went awry and started the blaze.

巴西有关部门周一拘捕了四名与巴西南部一场造成200多人死亡的夜店大火有关的男子,其中两人是夜店老板,两人是表演者。据称是表演者的烟火展示出了问题,造成大火。

The state authorities said the arrests were 'temporary' and were part of efforts to push the investigation forward, a legal power available to Brazilian courts, and didn't necessarily mean the men would be charged.

巴西有关部门说,拘捕是临时性的,同时也是推动调查的努力之一(巴西法院拥有这样的法定权力),并不一定意味着这四人会被起诉。

Survivors of the fire─Brazil's deadliest in nearly five decades─have said that sometime around 2 a.m. Sunday morning a Roman candle or emergency traffic flare that figured in a country-music performance ignited a fire in the roof of the club, called Kiss. Witnesses said either a musician or a security guard grabbed a fire extinguisher and tried to stop the fire. But the extinguisher didn't function.

这是巴西近50年来伤亡最惨重的火灾。幸存者说,周日凌晨2点左右,一支罗马焰火筒或紧急交通照明弹导致夜店“Kiss“的屋顶着火,当时夜店内正举行乡村音乐表演。目击者说,不知是乐人还是保安匆忙拿来灭火器,试图扑灭大火,但灭火器不能正常使用。

Representatives for the club's owners or the band couldn't be reached to comment.

无法联系到夜店老板或乐队的代表置评。
