Fire breaks out in light tower during Nationals game (Video)

Nationals Park light tower fire
A fire broke out in one of the light towers above the right field stands at Nationals Park during the 11th inning of Thursday night's Washington Nationals game.

Although play continued on the field without interruption, fans noticed the crackling and smoking coming from the light tower, and several sections of the upper deck in right field were evacuated to keep the fans safe. No word yet as to what caused the fire or how long it took to put the fire out.
