NYON, Switzerland -- UEFA has fined Napoli and Trabzonspor a total of €100,000 ($110,000) after fans caused fires in the stands during a Europa League match.
Small fires were started at Napoli's San Paolo Stadium by fans throwing lit fireworks during the Round of 32 match on Feb. 26.
UEFA says its disciplinary panel ordered Napoli to pay 60,000 euros ($66,000) and Trabzonspor €40,000 ($44,000).

Napoli cruised to a routine victory over Trabzonspor and confirmed their last-16 place in the Europa League in the process on Thursday night.
Having won last week's first leg 4-0, Rafael Benitez's men had the one task of avoiding capitulation to complete.
They did just that, with Jonathan de Guzman's goal getting them a 1-0 win on the night and a 5-0 one on aggregate.
Not that they needed to but Napoli got a hold of the game from the off, Dries Mertens drawing a save from Hakan Arikan.
Rafa Benitez said Napoli's Europa Leauge win over Trabzonspor "wasn't easy" despite a 4-0 scoreline in Turkey on Thursday.
Napoli shouldn't have too many too many troubles advancing to the round of 16, but Benitez insisted the opening leg was not as simple as it might have appearaed.
"It wasn't easy. We decided to keep playing the same tempo even after going 3-0 up," Benitez told Mediaset.
"We also got a fourth goal and I am satisfied. We did well throughout the game and were in complete control."
