Zenit St. Petersburg beat FK Volga 2-1 on Sunday and its fans celebrated by setting their section in Lokomotiv Stadium on fire. Judging by the people fleeing the area of flaming seats as a fire truck pulled up on the edge of the pitch, the blaze seemed to get a little bigger than the pyros intended. But the fire hose eventually put it out as the Zenit supporters cheered...and threw broken seats into the flames (which didn't actually help anything).

According to ITV, police reported that "430 seats in that part of the stadium were broken or destroyed" and that 15 arrests were made after the match.
