Someone tried to dry out a baseball field by dousing it with gas, a fire then ensued


The groundskeeper for a Connecticut high shool decided pouring gasoline along the infield would help the field dry out sooner. As you can imagine, someone then decided to start a fire.

According to WKYT, police are investigating the incident, though no one has been charged.

The groundskeeper said the gasoline was used because it had rained the night before and the field was wet, causing a delay.

To make matters worse, gasoline-soaked soil is a hazmat situation and requires for it to be tested and removed. That could cost the town thousands of dollars.
