Near the end of day one's festivities, Ultra Music Festival attendees captured footage of what appears to be a tree on fire at this year's event.

Based on the footage, it appears as though the fire is located not too far from the main stage. According to other users on Twitter, a firework accident may have caused the blaze, however that cannot be confirmed.

In addition to the fire, many attendees have mentioned problems with the shuttle service after the show. It is reported that this is due to a bus accident. 

At the time of writing, it does not appear as though the fire was spreading and surrounding attendees do not seem very concerned. The footage online shows the fire in a rather contained area away from most people. It's worth noting that the footage makes it hard to see just how big or small the actual blaze is.
