The Fourth of July, baseball and fireworks: It's a combo that just shrieks "America".
A New York Mets' minor league team's fireworks show on Thursday did not go as planned.
Videos and photos posted to social media showed flames engulfing trees and smoke filling the air.
The St. Lucie Mets, a Single-A team of the Mets located in Port St. Lucie, Florida, tried to have a fireworks show after the team's July 4th game.
Instead, the team gave fans a moment they would never forget because they started a fire.
Despite the fire, the Mets continued to set off the remaining fireworks.
The fire was extinguished quickly and no injuries were reported, according to the St. Lucie County Fire District.
The big league Mets host the Phillies this weekend, and there will be fireworks after Saturday night's game at Citi Field. According to the New York Post, the Mets started a similar fire just two years ago.
Hopefully it goes a little better than their minor league team's display.
