Phnom Penh, Cambodia News: On September 16, 2018, there was fire at Epic nightclub, Sangkat Tonle Bassac, Phnom Penh.

According to a young girl who was in the nightclub, she was dancing with her friends and they were watching a dancing group named Klap Ya Hands. While they were dancing and having a good time, there was a burst of fire and suddenly flames came down from the ceiling.
All the nightclub goers ran outside to escape the fire. Fortunately, there was nobody injured and the security guards succeeded in putting out the fire with an extinguisher.

There used to be a sign out front saying "EPIC CAR PARK", and when I saw it, I looked at the car park and thought "meh, it's not that great".
No matter how much it rains, the dirt never washes away.

Add another 5 months after the incident (like now).
The long hours being abused (e.g. pan/tilt/shutter movements to fast for the stepmotors) in "extreme" conditions (heat/dust/smoke).
All internal fans are working properly (in my opinion the cause of fire)
Yeah, you'll be fine.
No worries.
