CHICAGO (CBS) — A small electrical fire broke out at Wrigley Field early Wednesday morning.
According to a report from the Chicago Tribune, the Chicago Fire Department responded to a call reporting a small electrical fire in an office at Wrigley Field around 6:30 a.m. Wednesday morning.
The newspaper reported that by 7:30 a.m., fire crews had extinguished the fire.
The blaze was out before it had a chance to grow.
In its 97 years, Wrigley Field has seen at least one more serious fire.
On May 28, 1961, as the Cubs played an unremarkable game against the San Francisco Giants, a kerosene-powered hot dog cart caught fire in the box seats down the right field line, the book Wrigley Field: An Unauthorized Biography recalled.
Flames shot 20 feet into the air before firefighters from Engine Co. 78 just across Waveland Avenue from the ballpark arrived to but the blaze out, the book said.
