Man killed in fire at Sunshine Tour in Spain

Early Monday morning at the high-level Sunshine Tour in Vejer de la Frontera, Spain, a man staying in the truck of Finnish rider Nina Fagerström died in a fire. 

According to reports a fire in the parking lot of the Montenmedio equestrian stadium reached the front of the truck, where the man was sleeping. No horse was in the truck at the time. The reasons for the fire are still not known and the organizing committee has not yet communicated about the tragedy.

Correction: French news reports and the original translated text identified the victim of the fire as a groom for Ms. Fagerström. However, it has been clarified that he was staying in the truck but was not a groom with the team. The text has been corrected accordingly.
