Fire rips through mobile showers at Coachella music festival in California

A huge blaze broke out at popular California music festival Coachella following the first night of performances. Campers said they heard "explosion sounds". Firefighters on the scene were able to put out the fire.

According to authorities the fire broke out in the camp's shower area shortly after 2 a.m., with a mobile shower unit bursting into flames.

The fire department was called and contained the fire.

Two trailers were involved in the fire, one damaged and another destroyed.


ABC7 Los Angeles reported that witnesses saw public showers engulfed in flames after hearing a loud boom similar to an explosion. "Fire crews will remain on scene for one hour for overhaul", it added.

Weekend one of the festival continues today and tomorrow, with acts like Ariana Grande, Kid Cudi, and Weezer set to perform.

The livestream began at 4 p.m. PT on April 12 and will run through both weekends of Coachella on three separate channels.
