Episode Summary

EDIT
Speedle and Delko are present when a trendy nightclub catches fire, apparently from a DJ's pyrotechnics display, killing sixteen people and injuring dozens of others. But the ensuing investigation reveals it may have been arson to cover up a murder. Meanwhile, Horatio probes the death of a prostitute whose body is found in the bathroom of a judge's home and evidence suggests that she was in the club during the fire.moreless

  • I cannot believe he loses a girl he really likes. A nightclub fire is very cool.

    Two CSI's, Delko and Speedle, were trapped in a night club fire and must try to escape. That is such great drama. Alot of people were killed in that fire from different things like fire burning or smoke inhalation or somthing else but im not sure wut it could be. But its amazing how some alcohol could have cause special effect sparklers to catch the whole place on fire. Then Horatio is called to a Judges? home where he finds another person who was caught in the fire and went there to try and shake it off but then she started coughing and fell and hit her head in the shower. That brings the body count up one. But it is very cute. I really did enjoy this episode alot.moreless

Bartender found in an uncleared room. Someone started the fire to clear up a murder. Money found in club owners car. It was over 30 k. Someone killed man with believed to be a bottle. Bartender wanted to start a fire because he had been rejected from the fire department 3 times this year. Danny started the fire and the other bartender found out what he was doing.moreless
  • Rhode Island nightclub like incident mirrors show!

    9.7
    The ninety-nine deaths of the 2003 RI nightclub incident

    mirrors the deaths of what this episode is about as there were both no water sprinklers.

    Ever since that incident happened, now there have been water sprinklers hopefully in all nightclubs to make sure that everybody gets out in one piece and alive hopefully!
