Miller Park ready for game after restaurant fire

Several areas sustain water damage due to overnight fire in Friday's kitchen


MILWAUKEE -- An overnight kitchen fire at one of the restaurants at Miller Park has left some parts of the ballpark damaged, but the team says "most of the operations and fan accommodations were back to normal" in time for Monday night's game against the Reds.

The fire began at around 2 a.m. CT Monday in the kitchen of Friday's Front Row Sports Grill, according to The Associated Press. It spread through a few of the nearby ducts, but was put out before any injuries or extensive damage occurred.

A few areas that sustained water damage will not be operational until further notice. They include: 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.

According to the team release, fans who have tickets in the Friday's seating area will be contacted by the Brewers for alternate seating options.
