Mechanical fire sets off alarm bells at Comerica Park during Friday's game


DETROIT — Alarm bells were ringing all over Comerica Park late in Friday’s game, but it wasn’t a bullpen alert.

No, it was an actual emergency — of sorts.

According to the team, the alarms were tripped by a mechanical fire in a janitor’s closet in the Tiger Club, one that was contained and put out before the Detroit Fire Department even arrived on scene, according a team spokesperson.

The alarm bells — along with flashing lights all over the stadium — began in the top of the ninth inning. The system overrides the public address system in the stadium, meaning that for the rest of the game, there were no introductions, or in-game music.

It didn’t really impact the play on the field.

“When it first initially happened, it’s like ‘Oh, the alarm’s going off,’” catcher Alex Avila said. “But after that, whether the PA’s going, or the guy’s announcing me, you gotta go up there and do your job.”
