CSW BREAKING: Fire Reported in The Scoreboard at Kauffman Stadium

At 2:10 pm- a fire in the large digital centerfield scoreboard at the Royal's Kauffman Stadium was reported "out."

Fire crews were called to the baseball stadium at the Truman Sports Complex around 1:45 pm- and it took "several water cans" to extinguish the fire.

One firefighter suffered a head injury when "an axe fell from some distance and hit (the male firefighter) on his helmet."

The injury sounded non life-threatening as the patient was being transported to St. Luke's Plaza hospital.

It's yet unknown the extent or cause of the fire- and if the scoreboard is working as there is a Royals game (vs.  Baltimore) in progress as of this post.
