Fire strikes restaurant at Miller ParkSubmitted: 07/21/2014
Story By Associated Press

MILWAUKEE - Tonight's game will go ahead after a fire at Miller Park, home of the Milwaukee Brewers.

The fire was contained mainly to a restaurant.

The fire started about two this morning at Friday's Front Row Sports Grill.

The fire apparently started in the restaurant's kitchen and spread up through some duct work.

No one was injured.

A Brewers executive says most of the damage at the ballpark wasn't caused by the fire, but by water.

The sprinkler system and firefighting efforts caused flooding in some meeting rooms.

Elevators and escalators in the left field area aren't working.

Tonight's home game will go on as scheduled.

Fans can use the elevators and escalators in other areas of Miller Park.

RHINELANDER - You can find a lot of signs around downtown Rhinelander this summer. Some say "road closed," others say "detour". But some new, large signs will help you find all the downtown businesses are still open.

Downtown Rhinelander, Inc. printed several laminated signs directing people to those downtown shops and restaurants.  The signs will be placed on Lincoln Street as well as various entry points downtown.

Hext Theater Owner Jim Hext, who serves as DRI's promotions director, says some store owners put signs up in front of their buildings, which made a big difference.

"A lot of traffic flowed to their businesses then because of the signage that they put up," Hext said.  "So this is in hope that people will kind of see that as well too."

RHINELANDER - Rhinelander's July 4th parade will follow a slightly different route this year, due a major downtown reconstruction project.  But the parade organizer says people are as excited as ever for the celebrations.

Instead of going down Brown Street as in years past, the parade will step off right in front of the Oneida County Courthouse on Oneida and Davenport Streets.  The route will then go down Pelham Street, past City Hall, and north up Courtney ending at Young Street.

"We know there's excitement when they're saying, 'Is there going to be a parade? Is there going to be a parade? How are you going to do it,'" parade director Dale Schlieve said.
