The fire in an upper-deck storage room built out of cinder blocks was reported at 5:04 a.m. and put out within 15 minutes.

A fire broke out in the same storage room Saturday night as the Dodgers played the Florida Marlins.

Los Angeles fire spokesman Erik Scott said it appeared the fire rekindled.

“This appears to be a small smoldering fire from the previous fire,” he said. “There is no indication this was a separate fire.”

Saturday’s fire was reported at 8:47 p.m. and put out in about 20 minutes by 41 firefighters.

The Dodgers play the Colorado Rockies tonight.
