COMSTOCK PARK, MI (WHTC) -- A massive fire at Fifth Third Ballpark today has caused major damage to the suite level on the first base side.  Denny Baxter, one of the owners of the Whitecaps, says they will be ready for opening day.  Baxter already had his hands full today as he was called away from his wife’s chemotherapy treatment.

 Holland Public Safety Fire Captain, Chris Tinney, says his thoughts go out to the firefighters on scene.  He also said fire fighting in today's weather is a big challenge.  

Flames broke out around 11 A.M. and the entire suite level on the first base side is heavily damaged.  Crews are still on the scene looking for hot spots.
