A fire broke out at the Coachella campgrounds in Indio, California on the first night of its 2019 edition at an on-site shower station near the center of the festival. While the cause of the blaze is still under investigation, but various speculations suggest that a propane tank attached to the shower unit malfunctioned and exploded.
Officials report say that no first responders or festival attendees were injured.
