Yankees' Triple-A team starts brush fire with postgame fireworks
The Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre Yankees started a brush fire with postgame fireworks on Saturday.
The Yankees dropped to 1-4 on the young season with Saturday's loss to the Tigers. And if that wasn't bad enough, their Triple-A affiliate in northeastern Pennslyvania started a brush fire with postgame fireworks a few hours later:
Donnie Collins of the Scranton Times-Tribute has another view of the fire, which was apparently pretty substantial. This wasn't a "dump whatever's left in the water bottle on it and we'll be good" thing. The Bronx might be burning, but at least not literally like the woods behind the newly-renovated PNC Field in Scranton.
Firefighters have since put out the fire, and no injuries have been reported.
