A popular gay nightclub in Lincoln, Nebraska was destroyed in a fire last night.
A four-alarm fire broke out at Karma Nightclub and Cabaret, heavily damaging the building and knocking out power in the surrounding area. The fire started at the club at 226 S. Ninth St. around 7:15 p.m. Saturday. Club occupants were being evacuated from the building by 7:30 p.m., when flames were seen coming from the building. Within minutes, the roof collapsed and heavy smoke came pouring out. There were no immediate reports of injuries. Only two patrons were inside the club when the fire broke out. Bystanders suggested the fire likely started near the stage.
Formerly known as The Q, the club celebrated its one year anniversary last week.
