A hip-hop musical festival at Discovery Park in Sacramento took a turbulent turn Sunday after a fire led to several injuries and a man was killed during a fight.

The sold-out, KSFM-FM radio event that featured popular rap and hip-hop artists, including E-40, Fat Joe and Remy Ma, Tyga and Ty Dolla Sign was going smoothly until about 2:30 p.m. when a deep-fryer ignited a propane tank and caused a fire in one of the food tents.

The blaze triggered a stampede among the crowd of people, according to the Sacramento Fire Department.

As the concertgoers ran away from the fire, several people were trampled and injured in the 302-acre park. Firefighters doused the flames, but had to quickly switch gears and treat the injured.
