It’s no secret that the New York Mets have become an epic dumpster fire this season. After opening the season 11-1, they’ve encountered nothing but bad luck since then and find themselves at 26-26.
Injuries have been a huge problem, and the team just cannot seem to catch a break. Seemingly piling on to all that, an event at Citi Field seemed to perfectly encapsulate the team’s season on Wednesday.
Out of nowhere, a fire broke out at the stadium, which was big enough that FDNY had to be called out.

Thankfully, the fire was put out in around 15 minutes or so, due to the work of the firefighters, and it appears nobody was hurt.

Fans were quick to react to this on Twitter.
While I hope every is ok and safe because of the Citi field fire, it’s just a perfect symbol when our own stadium goes up in flames

The Mets bullpen was called in to put out the fire at Citi Field but they poured gasoline on it.
Firefighters finished the job.
