Fire breaks out at Citi Field, perfectly summing up Mets season

Jesse Reed

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.
