Oakland A’s tailgaters set car on fire while pregaming (VIDEO)

It was pretty hot at O.co Coliseum for A’s fans on Opening Day, in many ways.

The party scene was great, as fans showed up in droves to support their team. It was also lit in the sense that a car fire broke out in the parking lot before the game, at around 6 pm local time.

While it’s unclear what started the fire, here’s what it looked like:

Firefighters were on the scene quickly, though, and they made quick work of the flames.

It was quite the scene, though, as fans were seen “cheering and laughing,” according to CBS SF. That seems a bit odd, as it certainly wasn’t anything worth cheering about.
