CORPUS CHRISTI, Texas — Multiple fans reported that they heard a loud bang, followed by a crane catching on fire at Saturday night's Corpus Christi Hooks game.
The city of Corpus Christi and several other agencies are investigating the equipment incident.
At approximately 7:43 p.m., Corpus Christi Fire Department staff was called to help Harbor Bridge Project crews, monitoring the situation until the fire was under control.
Fire Battalion Chief Frank Solsky told 3NEWS that there was a cable failure near the crane, which caused it to fail and catch fire.
One woman who was attending the game was taken to a nearby hospital, where Solsky said she is in stable condition. However, it is unclear whether her injuries were related to the fire.
