Minor League Baseball Team's Fireworks Cause Fire at Stadium

Tyler Brooke@TylerDBrookeSenior Analyst IIJuly 6, 2014


The Lancaster JetHawks tried to do something nice for their fans on the Fourth of July, but it definitely didn't go as planned.

After Saturday's game, Houston's Single-A affiliate tried to set off some fireworks but instead ended up lighting the outfield wall on fire.

More than a few fans tweeted pictures of the fire, while another provided a picture of the aftermath:

This isn't the first time this has happened. The California-based JetHawks had an accident with malfunctioning fireworks back in June 2013 that resulted in a dozen injuries.
