Vikings Fan Rental Car Goes Up in Flames – Tailgaters Grill Blamed
A Minnesota Vikings fan who traveled to New Jersey to see her team play the Jets got an unfortunate surprise when she returned to her rental car after the game.
Gina Smith tweeted out a photo of the car burnt to a crisp after the Vikings 37-17 win at MetLife Stadium in East Rutherford, New Jersey. In the photo, you can clearly see a grill grate laying on the charred remains of the vehicle.
According to The Press of Atlantic City, "Hot coals left by tailgaters are blamed for fires that damaged seven vehicles at New Jersey's MetLife Stadium parking lot."
