Small fire at Dodger Stadium forces fans to be relocated
Fans at Dodger Stadium along the right-field reserved level and upper deck had to be relocated in the fifth inning Saturday when smoke began drifting onto the ballpark from a fire in small warehouse below the reserved level.
A helicopter circled the smoke-filled area as at least four Los Angeles Fire Department fire trucks arrived at the scene. One truck extended a ladder from a lower, terraced parking lot to the upper deck.
Fans in the reserved level and upper deck were moved calmly to another part of the stadium.
The Dodgers said the small fire had been contained but were uncertain as to its origin. No one had to be evacuated.
The smoke continued to drift down the reserved level for another inning.
