Vermont’s Department of Labor and Industry has begun unannounced inspections of Vermont nightclubs and restaurants. The new effort follows tragedies at nightclubs in Rhode Island, where nearly 100 died in a fire, and Chicago, where 21 people died in a stampede.

State officials say they want to ensure emergency escapes are open, occupancy limits are not exceeded and emergency lighting and other systems are working.
