After securing a victory, sports fans tend to get a little fired up but in this post, we’ll show you what happens when an actual fire breaks out in the stands to celebrate a win.
Last Sunday, Zenit St. Petersburg picked up a win over FK Volga in a Russian Premier League soccer match and some of the visiting fans for Zenit decided to set a fire to some of the seats at Volga’s Lokomotiv Stadium.

The final stats from the blaze: over 450 seats destroyed and 11 arrests made in connection with starting the fire.
