Fire at Austin City Limits festival

We're headed out to the Austin City Limits festival this weekend, and before seeing any bands, we've got big news. There is a massive fire at the festival. Our writers can see an overwhelming plume of smoke from their car on I-35. Reports say several propane tanks exploded at a concession stand between two of the stages. Austin 360 is reporting that two people are critically injured.

Bands resumed performances at 3:10 p.m. this afternoon. -- Jonanna Widner and Chelsea Ide
