The St. Louis Rams and Pittsburgh Steelers were unable to kick off at their scheduled 1 p.m. ET start time after pyrotechnics during the Rams' entrance ignited a small fire on the turf of the Edward Jones Dome.

NFL.com posted a video of the incident, during which no one was injured:

ESPN.com's Nick Wagoner and CBS shared photos of officials attempting to repair the turf so the game could get underway:

Both teams are looking to improve to 2-1 on the season.
