The municipality of Barranco closed several clubs, and pubs, over the weekend, due to failure to comply with safety standards.
The municipality said 10 establishments located in Sanchez Carrion were shut down, due to inadequate infrastructure and equipment, despite being warned of the faults last April, Andina reported.
Several business were found to be lacking fire extinguishers, in some cases walls were covered with highly flammable material, and emergency doors were found to be locked.
Viviana Orellana, a civil defense representative in Barranco, said the nightclubs that were shut down were “death-trap”.
“Power lines are not in channels or in tubes, as they should be. No safety signs, there are awnings on the roof there; everything is displayed as a death trap,” Orellana was quoted as saying by Andina.
She said business would have to comply with regulations, and make the necessary changes, if they wished to reopen.
