Fire breaks out at Spanish festival

Kings of Leon and Maximo Park were forced to pull their performances at Benicassim festival when a fire broke out as Paul Weller started his slot on the main stage leaving furious fans booing and leaving the site in their masses.
At around 9:30pm last night (July 17) a patch of long grass which runs alongside the CN-340 road and adjacent to the festival grounds caught fire and was reduced to ash as flames engulfed the area.
No injuries have been reported but the area where the fire boke out is a popular walk-way for festival goers when travelling between the festival and beach.
An announcement is due to be made shortly confirming whether Kings of Leon and Maximo Park will be able to play their sets tonight.
