The FDNY and NYPD brawled on the ice at a charity hockey game Sunday at Nassau Coliseum on Long Island, N.Y.

The bench-clearing brawl broke out in the second period when the New York City volunteer Fire Department and Police departments were tied 3-3, CBS New York reported.

No one was injured in the melee, the exact cause of which is unclear.

"It was reminiscent of the old-time Rangers-Flyers games in the mid-70s," one NYPD officer who was at the game told the New York Post. "I was waiting for (legendary Philadelphia Flyers enforcer) Dave Schultz to come out on the ice."

Several local media outlets reported that the stands appeared evenly split between the NYPD and FDNY during the game.

The melee caused a 25-minute delay in which referees handed out penalties, including several ejections.

The NYPD ended up winning, 8-5.

According to CBS Sports
, despite the loss on Sunday, the FDNY still holds a 23-16-2 record over the NYPD. The FDNY won the charity games for the past five years.

Ken Ternlund, an avid hockey fan, uploaded a video of the fight to YouTube.

"All of a sudden it just looked like gloves were dropping, helmets were dropping, and all of a sudden an all-out war just broke out," he told CBS2 News.

Both the fire and police departments declined to comment on the incident, The Associated Press reported.
