Many home chefs have had the experience of setting off a smoke alarm by burning something in the kitchen.

But the Fort Wayne TinCapsí smoldering cuisine brought the Fort Wayne Fire Department to Parkview Field early Thursday. The cause: A hot dog bun-warmer stand along right field was left on overnight.

Firefighters were called to the ballpark just before 4 a.m. because of smoke in the building. They were led to a concession area where they found light smoke and a concession machine, which was carried outside.

Cups of water from a nearby drinking fountain were required to douse the blaze. Firefighters were able to handle the situation in 16 minutes.
