Fifth Third Ballpark On Fire North Of Grand Rapids

Smoke is billowing out of Fifth Third Ballpark. The home of the West Michigan Whitecaps caught fire around 11 a.m. today, and smoke can be seen from as far away as the Gerald R. Ford International Airport on the far southeast side of Grand Rapids. It appears the entire suite level on the first base side has been destroyed. Firefighters from all over the Grand Rapids area are battling the flames on a bitterly cold afternoon. There are no reported injuries, and all team staff members were able to get out of the stadium without incident. The Whitecaps are the Single-A affiliate of the Detroit Tigers.
