After Kentucky beat Wisconsin in the Final Four, Solid Blue Fans flooded the streets.

South Limestone and State Street are again packed with thousands of people.

Lexington Police said it looks like there are just as many if not more people celebrating this year than during the National Championship win in 2012.

ABC 36 crews on the scene said people are lighting shirts on fire and tossing them into the air.

They are also setting off fireworks from the rooftops again.

Police are controlling the crowds and are wearing riot gear once again.

Limestone is shut down right now from Alumni nearly to downtown Lexington.

ABC 36's Melanie Kendall is on State Street right now. She is tweeting as the celebrations continue. Follow her on twitter @MelanieKendall.
