A government official, Susan Straub, said at least 17 couch fires were lit overnight in the State Street area of Lexington and there were 18 injuries, most of them minor and treated at the scene. She confirmed seven arrests but had no further details early Tuesday.
She said in a statement that one of the injured was hit by a train and taken to a hospital but she had no further word on that person's condition or identity.
Shirtless youths streamed into the streets and lit fires soon after Kentucky's 60-54 loss to Connecticut on Monday night.
