A-State baseball scoreboard catches fire

JONESBORO, AR (KAIT) - Sparks flew from the scoreboard on a university baseball field.

The Region 8 News SkyCAM on top of the Centennial Bank Stadium caught the action at Tomlinson Stadium and Kell Field late Tuesday night.

Jerry Scott, Arkansas State University assistant athletics director for media relations, states in a news release Wednesday the small electrical fire at the stadium happened around 10:50 p.m.

Firefighters on the scene had it under control just after 11 p.m.

An initial assessment indicates the fire started in a backlit advertisement panel, according to Scott.

No significant damage was done to the scoreboard and repairs will begin immediately.
