Bucs' scoreboard catches fire

2/18/2012

If this had happened at the Mercedes-Benz Superdome in New Orleans, the jokes would already be flying about how the high-powered Saints’ offense was the culprit.

But, since we’re talking about Tampa Bay’s Raymond James Stadium, the Buccaneers’ offense instantly was crossed off the list of suspects when a stadium scoreboard caught fire Saturday.

In all seriousness, a fire broke out in speakers on the scoreboard in the north end zone. Emergency crews responded and quickly put out the fire.

It reportedly was caused by an electrical problem.
