7 vehicles damaged by parking lot fire at MetLife Stadium

Hot coals left by tailgaters in the parking lot were responsible for fires that damaged seven vehicles during Sunday night's game


EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. — Hot coals left by tailgaters are blamed for fires that damaged seven vehicles at New Jersey's MetLife Stadium parking lot.

It happened Sunday during the game between New York Jets and Minnesota Vikings.

State Trooper Alejandro Goez tells the Star-Ledger of Newark a driver parked in an area where tailgaters had dumped coals from a grill. Another vehicle parked over coals in another lot, and flames spread to five other vehicles.

No one was injured.

Goez says it's not the first time this has happened.
