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

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 will be 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 working 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.

Firefighters respond to an explosion and fire at the Scratch Restaurant in downtown Lake Oswego

LAKE OSWEGO, Ore. – The explosion was so powerful late Saturday night, it blew the windows out of a downtown restaurant and the street, according to the Lake Oswego Fire Department.

The fire marshal was unable to clearly decide what triggered the explosion and fire, but the investigators found a ceiling fan which may have contributed to the cause at the Scratch Restaurant at 149 A Avenue in downtown Lake Oswego.

Firefighters arrived at the restaurant shortly after 11:30 p.m. to find its front windows in the street and smoke coming from the building. Firefighters said a fire was burning in a room off the main area of the restaurant.

Battalion Chief David Morris said, “A smoke explosion occurs when the products found in smoke, mix with air, creating a flammable mixture. When this flammable mixture finds an ignition source it creates an explosion, similar to what happens when a cloud of gas reaches an ignition source.”

They were able to get the fire under control in about 10 minutes and the damage at $50,000, firefighters said.

There was no one in the restaurant at the time of the explosion and there were no injuries.
