Since most of you have been laying next to a pool, drinking Mai Thais and nibbling on shrimp kabobs this weekend there’s a good chance you missed all the fuss Saturday night at Dodgers Stadium. Let’s catch up on the news of how Chavez Ravine had to evacuate its upper deck after a fire broke out in a storage room, causing fans to think Frank McCourt was looking for his revenge.
It took 41 firefighters 20 minutes to extinguish the blaze that engulfed a storage room in the upper deck of Dodger Stadium on Saturday night, according to Los Angeles Fire Dept. spokesman Brian Humphrey.
The cause of the fire, which forced officials to relocate thousands of fans to other parts of the stadium, remains under investigation. No one was injured.
Mattingly said the Dodgers were not apprised of what was going on during the incident.
“We saw the smoke, and you could smell it,” Mattingly said. “I guess it was assumed it wasn’t too major because nobody came down to say, ‘Hey, we’ve got trouble.'”
Nah, nothing major, just a fire burning in the upper deck.
