We have some incredible pictures of Friday's blaze at Fifth Third Ballpark. Click HERE or the picture below to see more.
Here’s what we know:
*The fire was started by an unattended heater.
*The fire began around 11am in a suite on the first baseline side of the structure.
*Around noon, partial collapse of the roof was reported.
*At one point the fire was so bad the WoodTV8 weather radar was picking up the smoke as if it were clouds.
*The Whitecaps have already committed to rebuilding the stadium & they hope to be ready by opening day
*The best news of all... EVERYONE got out ok. NO injuries.
- My first job was as a "Soda Jerk" at Cone Corners in Stevens Point, Wisconsin. (Cheesy, huh?)
- Every spring, I participate in the World's Largest Trivia Contest in my hometown of Stevens Point, Wisconsin. Out of about 500 teams and 10-12,000 players, we usually finish in the top 100!!! It's 54 straight hours of useless information and I love it. See? I'm not wired right. Just for the record, my team placed 73rd this year. :)
- I am a proud doggie mommy of "Spooner." She's a rescue who was an abused puppy mill mom. I am amazed at the FANTASTIC rescues and shelters we have in West Michigan. If you think you want to add to your family, the joy of a shelter pet in unparalleled!
- I was the lead singer in a cover band and I miss it.
