The St. Lucie Mets hosted an "Independence Day fireworks extravaganza" on Thursday night in honor of the Fourth of July that ended in a fire outside the stadium at First Data Field.

While responders worked to contain the pyrotechnics problems, the game still went on inside the stadium.

Despite the fire, the Mets continued to set off the remaining fireworks.

Brenda Stokes, a spokesperson for the St. Lucie County Fire District, told TCPalm.com that no one was injured in the fire. Stokes also said no property was damaged, and the fire was under control within a half hour.

St. Lucie is the Mets' Class-A Advanced affiliate based in Port St. Lucie, Fla. A three- to four-acre brush fire broke out at the same stadium after a fireworks display in 2017.

Two fires in a three-season span is not a good sign for St. Lucie.
