A popular nightclub is in ruins after a devastating fire.

The flames broke out early Saturday morning inside The Backstage nightclub in Somerset. Within minutes, firefighters say the building was engulfed.

The fire started after the club had closed, so no one was inside at the time. The club's owners say 250 people had been celebrating Halloween inside the club Friday night.

Surveillance video from a nearby jewelry store caught the smoke and flames on tape.

The owners hope to rebuild. Investigators are still trying to figure out what caused the fire.
