Video from inside the National Museum of Rio de Janeiro after a massive fire ripped through the building shows almost nothing survived the blaze on Sunday.

The museum held Latin America’s largest collection of historical and scientific artifacts, and officials suggested that the damage could be catastrophic, with one official telling a Brazilian news outlet that as much as 90% of its collection could be destroyed.

A video posted to Twitter shows most of the artifacts had turned to rubble and ash. The largest meteorite ever discovered in Brazil is seen in the clip, one of the few artifacts to survive the fire.
