One hot mess over here at the Mets stadium watching fireworks after the game and trees are on fire. Great game, Mets won 4-1. Great show!!Posted by Alene Myers on Thursday, July 4, 2019
No one was injured, thank goodness, and Treasure Coast Newspapers reports that the conflagration was snuffed out quickly by firefighters. But it looked to be a mighty blaze:
A small thing like a fire is not going to get in the way of a good fireworks show. No, sir.
Somehow, this is the second time in two years this has happened to that particular Mets farm team: In April 2017, postgame fireworks sparked a five-acre fire outside the stadium.
The big league Mets host the Phillies this weekend, and there will be fireworks after Saturday night’s game at Citi Field. What could possibly go wrong?
