This can and does happen in all sorts of different types of businesses.

In the past this was the case. MGM Grand and whatnot.

But now, at least in the US, fire deaths in businesses is exceptionally rare. With the exception of 9/11, there have been a whopping 0 fire deaths in properly sprinklered commercial buildings and high rises.

Most jurisdictions in the U.S. have strict fire codes. I know NY and NJ have very strict rules about farmhouses and places that intentionally disoriented or confuse people. Many were adopted after the Great Adventures Haunted Mansion fire that killed a bunch of teenagers in the early 80s.
