Authorities say more than 40 small fires were doused, 12 people were treated for minor injuries and several people were arrested after University of Kentucky fans filled Lexington streets to celebrate the Wildcat's NCAA tournament win over Wisconsin.
University of Kentucky spokeswoman Kathy Johnson says "nothing got out of control" following the game as crowds filled State Street where students traditionally gather after big wins. She says most fires involved couches or trash, and crowds were dispersed by 2:30 a.m.
Police officials were not immediately available for comment.
