MILWAUKEE --- Things are almost back to normal following a restaurant kitchen fire at Miller Park.

The fire happened early Monday morning at Friday's restaurant. Milwaukee Deputy Fire Chief Aaron Lipski says the fire apparently started in the kitchen and spread through some duct work. No one was injured.

The Brewers say areas that have water damage will not be operational into further notice. This includes Fridays 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.

The Brewers host the Cincinnati Reds tonight.

MILWAUKEE (AP) -- Officials say a fire at the Milwaukee Brewers' ballpark was contained mainly to a restaurant.

The fire started about 2 a.m. Monday at Friday's Front Row Sports Grill at Miller Park

Milwaukee Deputy Fire Chief Aaron Lipski says the fire apparently started in the restaurant's kitchen and spread up through some duct work. No one was injured.

Brewers executive Rick Schlesinger says most of the damage at the ballpark wasn't caused by the fire, but by water. The sprinkler system and firefighting efforts caused flooding in some meeting rooms and the elevators and escalators in the left field area aren't working.

Schlesinger says Monday night's home game will go on as scheduled. He says fans can use the elevators and escalators in other areas of Miller Park.
