The city is named after one of the former presidents of the Philippines, Manuel L. Quezon. Thus, one of the largest and most important parks of the country is located here. The park is where the remains of the former president and his wife have been laid.

Aside from these historical and showbiz-related facts, Quezon City is visited by those who want to haunt for ghosts because Quezon City is where the deadliest fire in the Philippines took place. A fire in one of the clubs in the area broke out back in 1996 and it claimed more than a hundred lives. The club is known as Ozone Disco.

The History Of Ozone Disco

The Ozone Disco was located in Timog Avenue and was opened in 1991 by Segio Orgaoow. The disco was operated by Westwood Entertainment Company, Inc.

The fire that killed 162 people took place on March 18, 1996 just before midnight. During that night, there were more than 350 people and 40 club employees. It was indeed a tragic evening because most of the patrons at Ozone Disco during that night were teenagers and young people. Most of them were celebrating their graduation or the end of their school year. Six people, who survived, allegedly saw sparks flying inside the DJ’s booth and it was followed by some smoke. People thought it was part of the performance of the DJ but when they realized it wasn’t, they panicked.

The fire exit was faulty because a new building in the area blocked it. Thus a lot of people were not able to get out alive because many of them flocked to the only exit of the Ozone disco. Guards believed that there was a riot inside the disco so they locked the only exit so when the fire was put out, a lot of bodies were found piled near it.

The Ghosts At The Ozone Disco

Most of those who died were teens or young people who haven’t had the chance to experience life to its fullest. Thus, many believe that they continue to haunt the site of Ozone Disco to this day.

The area where the fire happened continued to have the charred and burnt-out shell of the Ozone Disco and left it untouched for many years. Some people who live nearby claim that at night, they hear faint disco music and see through the windows of the building the silhouette of people dancing.

A group called Justice for Ozone Victims was started by one Joseph Stephen Santos. He lost his cousin in the fire and he once invited questors so they can hold a séance in the site of the Ozone Disco. One of the questors allegedly succeeded in calling one of the spirits. The spirit claimed his name is Ed and that there were around 60 spirits haunting the site of the Ozone Disco. Ed said that they wanted to tell their loved ones that it was time to let them go although they wanted to be remembered. This certain Ed even made a special request that they come back on the anniversary of the fire. When the questors got back to the site of the once lively Ozone Disco, they called another spirit who they believe belongs to the DJ during that night. The DJ corroborated the allegations that the disco goers thought the sparks and smoke from the DJ booth were all part of the show. The DJ, identified as Joey, noted that he tried to douse the flames with a fire extinguisher but he failed. Joey added that he already found the light and move on to the next world but he still stayed so that he can help the other spirits who are not yet at peace.

Now, there are reportedly fewer spirits still haunting the Ozone Disco because they are still concerned for their loved ones who are still grieving. Workers around the area also said that they experience fewer paranormal activities but none of them still do not dare to work late at night.

The Site Of Ozone Disco Today

In 2015, the shell of the Ozone Disco was finally demolished a week before the 19th anniversary of the fire. In 2016, a new building was put up. The site now houses a branch of a known food chain in the Philippines owned by a TV personality.
