While everyone was having a good time at Coachella Music Festival, a large fire was quickly approaching the festival…. so close that if you did a quick jog, about six miles worth, you’d run right into the fire!
Around 4:30 a.m. Sunday April 15th, which happened to be right after Beyonce‘s EPIC Coachella performance, the authorities were called to report the fire near the festival. According to reports, dry vegetation helped fuel the fire, and ended up burning 15 acres of land.
About 100 firefighters battled the fire to keep it contained, but in the process it burned the power lines.
There are no reports of any injuries and how the fire started.
