Fire Marshal Closes Longview Night Club

Officials in Longview closed down a night spot they say was "dangerously" over capacity.   Longview Fire Marshals were called to Yellow Jackets Night Club around midnight after a huge crowd was reported inside and in the parking lot. The club has a capacity of 350 people, but investigators say almost 700 were inside, and another 200 outside.

Officials say nearby parking lots of businesses and hotels were jammed with traffic.   The owner has been fined for breaking the city's fire capacity code. One patron was arrested for gun possession.
