Flames and smoke billowed into the night sky.

There was no immediate word from authorities on the exact damage or if there were any injuries.

Goldenvoice’s newest festival installment Power Trip is gearing up this week at the Empire Polo Club.

It’s not clear if the vehicles may have been connected to that event.
