Weekend one of Coachella is heating up… quite literally.
A fire reportedly broke out early Saturday morning at the music festival in Indio, California around 2:06 am local time. The video below clearly shows the flames and black smoke rising out of a trailer.
The Coachella fire occurred near the center of the Empire Polo Club grounds venue, at a mobile shower unit. The blaze completely destroyed one trailer in the process and damaged another. It’s not clear exactly what caused the explosion.
According to the Riverside County Fire Department, four engines responded to the scene.
Thankfully, no injuries were reported.
Just days before Coachella took place, a worker tragically died in the staging area. Read more here.
