The explanation for the fire was not instantly identified and attendees mentioned flames appeared out of nowhere.

“I don’t know what caused it [because] as I was walking out it wasn’t or didn’t seem to be burning – didn’t notice it until [I] was walking down near the hotels just south of the bowl,”  @ScotyAppleseed informed Fox News Digital, including that “someone said it was near the tunnel so apparently across the street.”
