Dodger Stadium Storage Shed Catches Fire Again


The Dodger Stadium storage shed that caught fire Saturday night during a baseball game, according to the Los Angeles Fire Department, caught fire again early Monday morning. This last fire was reported at 5 a.m. and was put out within fifteen minutes. Los Angeles fire spokesman Erik Scott said the fire appeared to be rekindled from the Saturday night fire.

“This appears to be a small smoldering fire from the previous fire,” he said. “There is no indication this was a separate fire.”

On Saturday night, it took firefighters about 20 minutes and 41 firefighters to put out a fire involving paper products in the same storage room at the stadium. The Saturday night fire occurred while the Dodgers were playing the Florida Marlins.

Tonight, the Dodgers play the Colorado Rockies.

Morris told the Los Angeles Times Tuesday.

Det. Morris said that with the $100,000 reward and publicity buzz concerning the beating that left Brian Stow hospitalized with brain damage and in a medically induced coma have investigators filtering through numerous tips as the identity of the two suspects remains a mystery. “Detectives are working shift after shift," Morris said. "When one team goes off another one comes on.”

The Los Angeles Police Department (the "Department") describes the suspects as 2 Latino males from 18 to 25 years who have tattoos visible underneath their apparel and are working to get more details on the suspects’ appearance. Captain Bill Murphy said the Department may update the descriptions.

Although many people were in and around the parking lot after the game, incredibly, no one seems to know where the assailants fled. The two male suspects may have been with a young boy and they drove away in a vehicle, although Det. Morris said investigators did not know what type of vehicle they drove away in.
