The Warriors' bench scored 65 points in the 113-102 win over the Pelicans, peaking at the right time just before the postseason. The Warriors later announced Curry would not return to the game "for precautionary reasons" due to a mild foot sprain.

One of the campers wearing only a towel and explosions were heard as the fire spread some people on Twitter have said. One trailer was destroyed and another was damaged from the flames, but no injuries were reported.

Authorities have provided no details on what might have ignited the fire.

This year's festival, which wraps up on April 21, is headlined by Childish Gambino, Ariana Grande and Tame Impala.
