    The Coachella music festival, which started on Friday, was expected to spark some fire, but not literally. The flames that broke out at the world-famous arts and music event damaged a trailer and destroyed another.

    Riverside County Fire Department has received information about the incident at 2:06 a.m. local time. As the authorities reported, four vehicles were dispatched to the scene. The cause of the fire is not immediately clear.

    Coachella, an annual arts and music festival, started in Indio, California on Friday with Childish Gambino as the headliner. The line-up of the event is pretty impressive: thus, Ariana Grande and Tame Impala will be the headliners over the weekend, with Khalid, Janelle Monáe, Kacey Musgraves, Blackpink, Bad Bunny, and Idris Elba among the participants.
