COMSTOCK PARK, Mich. -- A fire has destroyed multiple suites and caused part of the roof to collapse at the West Michigan Whitecaps' ballpark.
Plainfield Township Fire Chief David Peterson said the response to Friday's blaze at 10,000-seat Fifth Third Ballpark in Comstock Park was slowed by a lack of fire hydrants near the park.
The chief tells MLive.com firefighters had to extend hoses to other hydrants, 1,500 feet away, which created low water pressure.
The affected suites run from home plate down the first base line.
A few workers were inside ballpark offices when the fire started in one of the suites. No injuries were reported.
The stadium is home to the Whitecaps, a Midwest League affiliate of the Detroit Tigers and an opponent of the Fort Wayne TinCaps. It's scheduled to host the Midwest League All-Star Game in June.
