Fenway Park Fire Amounts To $100K In Damages

When Boston Red Sox hitters catch fire in Fenway Park, the stadium erupts in joyous "Sweet Caroline" tunes and bleacher dwellers share random high fives with everyone in their midst. But when the park itself catches fire, there isn't quite the same cause for celebration.

Firemen from the Boston Fire Department rushed to Fenway Park late Monday morning to put out a small fire in the administrative office area on the second floor of Fenway.

The Fenway Park mail room was hit with approximately $100,000 worth of damage, according to a tweet from the Boston Fire Department, after an electrical short-circuit led to smoke and water damage.

If only Carl Crawford can get that hot, perhaps the Red Sox will make a run at another World Series title.
