While minor in comparison to the natural disaster that’s raging in Southern California, a Single-A baseball game between the Rancho Cucamonga Quakes and High Desert Mavericks was cancelled due to the wildfire.

That’s absolutely insane.
As off 8:05 p.m. ET on Friday, at least 3,500 acres have been burned.
Luckily, no serious injuries have been reported.
