Small fire snarls Dodger game traffic

A small brush fire tonight forced the closure of one of the main exits from Dodger Stadium, snarling traffic as thousands of fans exited the ball park. The fire, which began near the main stadium gate, broke out shortly after 9 pm and burned less than one-quarter acre at the northwest corner of Stadium Way and Elysian Park Avenue, said a fire fighter at the scene. Elysian Park Avenue, which connects leads from the main stadium gate to Sunset Boulevard, was shut down as the fire department used it as a staging area. Elysian Park Avenue was still shut down at about 10 pm. The cause of the fire had not been determined.

  1. Great, and they continue to shoot off fireworks on the Fridays they are in town. Smart.
