KANSAS CITY, Mo. — Moments after the Chiefs won the AFC Championship and punched their ticket to the Super Bowl, grass near GEHA Field at Arrowhead Stadium Gate 7 caught fire.

Kansas City, Missouri, Fire Department crews fought the blaze with two brush trucks and three additional pumpers. The brush trucks had been on scene already as a precaution.

KCPD reports the fire started around 9:50 p.m. and was out before 10:30 p.m.

"Dry grass conditions and winds along with having a water source were challenging," KCFD spokesperson Jason Spreitzer said in a statement.
