BREAKING: Huge fire breaks out at Coachella as people urged to flee

The Coachella music festival, which started on Friday, was expected to spark some fire, but not literally.

A fire broke out during the first night of Coachella, with social media footage appearing to show a row of showers in the campground ablaze.

There are no reports of injuries related to the blaze.

The Coachella fire occurred near the center of the Empire Polo Club grounds venue, at a mobile shower unit. Officials said one nearby trailer was damaged and another one was destroyed by the flames.

Mum on Senate support for Herman Cain for Fed
The president nominates members to the Fed's seven-member board of governors and Trump elevated Powell to chairman a year ago. He has also called for a return to the gold standard to control inflation, which most economists consider unworkable.

Fire services said that they responded to the fire at around 2am after revellers said they hear an explosion.

According to the Riverside County Fire Department, firefighters arrived at the Lot 8 storage area to find a shower unit engulfed in flames.

This year's festival, which wraps up on April 21, is headlined by Childish Gambino, Ariana Grande and Tame Impala.
