Scoreboard Catches On Fire In Ohio [VIDEOS]
Here’s a story from the “There’s something you don’t see everyday” file.
There was a 50-minute delay at the Columbus Crew stadium over the weekend. It wasn’t caused by rain or severe weather, though that probably would have helped when the scoreboard caught on fire.
Apparently the speaker cabinet at the top of the board is where the blaze began. Columbus fire fighters were on-scene almost immediately to put out the inferno.
The soccer match was supposed to start at 7:37pm, but the all-clear from officials wasn’t given until just before 8:00pm when the players took the field to warm up.
Because they had to cut power to the scoreboard, there was no sound system during the match, and the 14,090 fans took it upon themselves to sing the national anthem.
