    Didn't the same thing happen at a club last week? Like a "stampede" or something happened at a club and some people got killed?

    Many of the dead are still inside the building's charred remains, according to West Warwick Town Manager Wolfgang Bauer.

    "We are preparing to go into the facility and start looking at removing bodies from the site," said Bauer.

    Bauer described the blaze as "a quick flash fire" and noted that recent inspections had shown no violations.

    At least 40 people with a range of injuries -- mostly burns -- were taken to Kent Hospital, a few miles from The Station nightclub in the suburb of West Warwick, according to a hospital spokesman. Dozens of others were taken to other area hospitals.


    Flames soon consumed the building housing the nightclub.
    Concertgoers inside the packed club fled for their lives, jamming exits as they tried to escape the fast-moving fire.

    Video shot by CNN affiliate WPRI showed the band, Great White, performing as onstage fireworks went off stage. As the crowd cheered, a fire ignited by the pyrotechnics engulfed the stage. Initially, fans casually made their way toward the exit. Then, panic broke out, according to videographer Brian Butler, who was taping the rock concert.

    "It was that fast. As soon as the pyrotechnics stopped, the flame had started on the egg-crate [foam] backing behind the stage and it just went up the ceiling and people stood and watched it," Butler said.

    "Some people were already trying to leave and others were just sitting there going 'Yeah that's great!' and I remember that statement because I was like, 'This is not great, this is time to leave.'"

    As the flames spread inside the one-story club, band members jumped off the stage and joined the crowd, heading toward the exit.


    As the musicians perform, flames begin to creep up the wall behind them.
    "It went up like a Christmas tree," Jack Russell, Great White's lead singer, told The Providence Journal. "I was trying to put it out with a bottle of water. I turned around and the building was engulfed. My sound man is injured. I'm on my way to the hospital. I'm missing my guitar player."

    People on the videotape were screaming "I can't move!" as they tried to flee. Others were stacked on top of each other in the door frame, as they tried to exit the nightclub.

    Three days ago, 21 people died and more than 50 were injured in a stampede at a Chicago nightclub, after a security guard used pepper spray to break up a fight
