Scary situation is happened at our American Airlines Center in Dallas where R&B singer, Rihanna performed didn't last long last night. All these people trying to get out the exit doors. Eventually, stopped people from getting out. Took her a long time to come back  to Dallas then go up and perform. Lots of people were disappointed.

According to CBS, this is what happened in detail. According to a group of CBS 11 employees who attended the concert, it appeared the fire started from pyrotechnics that were part of the show.
The AAC was not evacuated immediately, but some people rushed the exits, causing a backup.
Dallas Fire Rescue Captain Johnny Bates says a chair caught on fire. ”We were called in to assist. One of our engine crews did enter the building but crew members with the AAC or concert put out the initial fire.”  The fire was knocked quickly. “Everything is under control and there are no injuries,” Bates added.
The concert ended early, frustrating fans who were already upset that Rihanna came out more than an hour late.
19-year-old Kristen Villemez came to the concert with her mother, who was celebrating her birthday. It was a mother-daughter outing.  “We were really looking forward to this. Now we’re wondering if our   money is going to be refunded in any way.”
Many concertgoers were fans of the singer who had tickets to her previous Dallas concert, which she cancelled.
Elvia Vigil is one of those fans. She told CBS11′s Sharrie Williams that she and her friends purchased tickets to last year’s show.  Now they finally attended the concert, it was cancelled prematurely because of the fire, leaving them disappointed.  “We waited so long to see her and now this. This is not how we expected the show to go. She was late getting here and we didn’t even get a proper ending.”
