(Classic Rock) The owners of a Bucharest nightclub where a fire killed 32 people and left almost 200 injured have been arrested. It has also been reported that two of the dead were members of Goodbye To Gravity, and that a third member of the band is in hospital in a critical condition.

According to the Guardian, Costin Mincu, Alin George Anastasescu and Paul Gancea were arrested on suspicion of manslaughter. The three men declined to comment.

Friday's blaze at rock venue Colectiv is believed to have started when a pyrotechnic display set fire to the stage during a concert by the local band Goodbye To Gravity.

Up to 400 people were in the club at the time and a stampede started after the fire took hold and swept through the venue. Romanian prosecutors say: "Data and evidence have shown the fire occurred because the people managing the respective space encouraged and allowed a number of people above the club's limit in a space that was not endowed with more emergency exits."
