(AP) - Family and friends are gathering to bury and remember their loved ones after a fatal nightclub fire in Santa Maria, Brazil. The club was hosting a party for university students Sunday when the fast-moving fire caused hundreds of partygoers to stampede toward the exit. Firefighters and police say more than 230 died and hundreds more were injured. Many of the victims were under 20 years old, including some minors. Brazilian police officials say they've made three detentions and are seeking a fourth person in connection with the blaze.


Here is a gallery of images depicting the emotional aftermath of this deadly fire.
