LMFAO Honduras Concert Ends in Flames

LMFAO was forced to stop their concert at the National Coliseum of Engineers last night, as smoke from fire burning inside began to fill the arena.

More than 7,000 people were evacuated from the coliseum, East of Tegucigalpa in the early hours this morning.

“Twelve people were given attention for anxiety and nerves and another group of about ten for smoke inhalation,” a Green Cross rescuer, Maynor Rodríguez reported.

According to the source, the alarm sounded when a dense funnel of smoke arose from the basement of the coliseum and spread through the stands, supposedly due to an overheating of the electrical lines.

Firefighters mobilized ten units of firefighters. The Red Cross, Green Cross, and police moved a dozen ambulances to the scene, where they evacuated those attending the concert.

“We were able to control the situation, so there was no extra damage by a stampede; we worked to relax people, and thus avoid a tragedy,” said Rodriguez.

“There were no casualties in regards to human lives, and the origin of the fire will be investigated by specialists”, according to firefighter Angel Arturo Tróchez.

After the show, Redfoo tweeted about the incident, saying, “Epic concert tonight!!!! Everybody in Honduras, we set the place on fire!!!!” He also tweeted, “They told us that there was a fire when we were on stage. Then we went to the dressing rooms and there was smoke in the halls.”

The entertainer tweeted a bit later on, “On a serious note. Hope everybody is safe from the fire tonight! Love you Honduras!”
