Fire strikes restaurant at Miller Park
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.
