Huge fire breaks out at Coachella as people urged to flee

Coachella music festival-goers took to social media to document a raging fire that broke out on the campgrounds during the California festival's first night.

ABC7 Los Angeles reported that witnesses saw public showers engulfed in flames after hearing a loud boom similar to an explosion.

It has not been revealed what was the cause of this fire. Fire crews will remain on scene for 1 hour for overhaul. Along with that, no concertgoers suffered any injuries. The Riverside County Fire Department was on the scene with four fire trucks.

The Coachella music festival, which started on Friday, was expected to spark some fire, but not literally.

"I was waiting in line tryna shower at Coachella & it exploded & caught on fire right in front of me", one Twitter user recalls. Officials said one nearby trailer was damaged and another one was destroyed by the flames.
