BOSTON (CBS) — It’s not often you see an explosion on live TV. It’s even more rare to see it as the backdrop of a sporting event.

That’s what happened in this soccer match between two Romanian clubs. As the game winded down in the 89th minute, a nearby building suddenly burst into flames. The explosion reportedly killed one person and wounded five others.

Watch the explosion in the video above. The match had to be suspended after the explosion, which appears to have happened right next to the stadium.

H/t Deadspin
