Per the Boston Herald, the band’s tour-bus caught fire in front of their hotel in the city on Friday night. No-one was injured in the blaze.

According to a fire report, a generator located within the bus’ ventilation/air-conditioning unit caught fire and spread throughout the bus, damaging the unit and burning the interior. The fire was put out about 5:00 a.m. Damages are estimated to be $50,000.

And, as if that wasn’t enough run-ins for Irish rock with fire engines, there was a fire at The Village venue in Dublin on Saturday night, leading to the evacuation of 800 people from the building.
