Blaze in Citi Field offices contained

DENVER -- As the New York Mets brace for snowy conditions on Monday night at Coors Field in Colorado, their home park was dealing with a fire.

Citi Field administrative offices were damaged by an early morning blaze, the team said. The fire was contained by sprinkler systems and extinguished by the FDNY.

"Damage was limited to this area of the administration building," the team said in a statement. "There was no damage to any areas accessed by fans at Citi Field. The cause of the fire is being investigated and we will have no further comment."

The Mets open a four-game series against the Colorado Rockies on Monday night, but snow and frigid temperatures might lead to another postponement. The teams' game Sunday against the Minnesota Twins at Target Field was postponed until Aug. 19 because of snowy conditions.
