Dodger Stadium Catches Fire Again

Early Monday morning, firefighters responded to a small fire at a Dodger Stadium storage shed, less than 48 hours after responding to another fire in the same shed during a Saturday night game against the Florida Marlins. After being called in around 5 am on Monday, it took firefighters only a few minutes to put out the second fire.

More than 40 firefighters needed about 20 minutes to put out the Saturday night fire during the sixth and seventh innings. No evacuations were necessary, but it’s just one more black spot on a once-storied franchise that’s now been taken over by Major League Baseball.

The Saturday fire involved paper products in a storage room, but the cause of the Monday morning fire wasn’t immediately clear, and firefighters weren’t even sure if the two fires were related. Craig Calcaterra of NBC Sports joked that Dodgers owner Frank McCourt might be turning to arson to cash in on insurance money since nothing else he’s done with the team has gone well.

On the field, the Dodgers (24-30) are bogged down in fourth place, 5.5 games behind the first-place Giants and Diamondbacks.
