According to the CBC, the football stadium that’s home to the Saskatchewan Roughriders has begun playing footage of the flames on its giant hi-def screens — but from a distance, residents think the Yule log’s fires are the real deal. The fire department has been called to Mosaic Stadium four times in the past three weeks.

Regina Deputy Fire Chief Gerard Kay suggests the holiday-themed fire footage be swapped for “maybe some snowflakes or Santa or something like that.”
