While parts of Miller Park sustained water damage during an overnight kitchen fire at one of the restaurants, the Milwaukee Brewers said the ballpark will be mostly operational for Monday’s game against the Cincinnati Reds.
MLB.com reported the fire in the kitchen of Friday’s Front Row Sports Grill started somewhere around 2 a.m., but was extinguished before there was extensive damage.
No one was injured in the blaze.
However, there will be some areas of the park shut down because of water damage and they will remain closed until further notice, including Friday’s Restaurant, the escalators and elevators in the left-field area, the left-field loge concession stand and the Miller Park Conference Center Meeting Rooms on the club and terrace levels.
The team says it is contacting fans who have tickets in the affected area of the facility to arrange alternate seating.
The fire comes several weeks after a fan fell over a railing at Friday’s Front Row Sports Grill and dropped into a net above the Brewers bullpen in left field.
The fan was transported in an ambulance and was reported to be conscious and alert at the time emergency workers got to him in the bullpen and taken to Froedtert Hospital.
So it’s been a tough season at Friday’s, to be sure.
