A fire destroyed the mythical and famous Baby’O nightclub in Acapulco, Mexico, on Wednesday night, which had been closed to the public for more than a year and a half due to the pandemic. Eduardo Cesarman, founding partner of the premises, denounced in various media that it was a fire caused by a group of armed men.
“It was arson. It was not a short circuit. Three people arrived. They tied up the policeman. They were carrying some cans with some kind of liquid, which could have been gasoline or ‘thinner’, and they set the place on fire. There are videos and tests “, commented to Radio Formula.
Security cameras recorded the moment when the men set fire to the compound.
Cesarman assured that “clearly, they were going to burn it.” “We had no quarrel, the place was ready to open, we have been keeping it for a year and a half and it was in perfect condition, it does not owe money and we weren’t even in a hurry to open“he commented.
Baby’O had 45 years of history and was one of the favorite places of celebrities, such as the singer Luis Miguel, and it became a benchmark of Acapulco’s nightlife.
Authorities are investigating the causes of the fire.
