CLEVELAND (AP) Clouds of black smoke billowed into the sky behind Progressive Field about 45 minutes before the game between the Minnesota Twins and Cleveland Indians.

The fire began in a building located behind the ballpark's parking garage in left field Saturday. Sirens of emergency vehicles could be heard as they approached the scene. A team spokesman said access to the garage and adjoining streets was closed.

The fire was under control about 15 minutes before the scheduled 7:10 p.m first pitch. Fans continued to enter the ballpark and pre-game activities proceeded normally. The game began on time.
