Fire department investigating two Dodger Stadium fires

May 30, 2011 | 12:49 pm


The Los Angeles Fire Department is investigating what caused two separate fires that broke out in a three-day span in the same storage room at Dodger Stadium.

The eighth-floor cinder-block room, which measures approximately 20 feet by 20 feet, caught fire again Monday morning around 5 a.m., according to LAFD spokesman Erik Scott. The blaze was extinguished within minutes.

Scott described the fire as a “small rekindling” of a paper-products blaze in the same room on Saturday night. The earlier fire, which took place while the Dodgers were facing the Florida Marlins, took 20 minutes to put out.
