Fire breaks out at under-construction Texas Rangers stadium

The $1.2 billion stadium being built for the Texas Rangers caught fire Saturday.

The two-alarm blaze was quickly put out, but not before it sent a huge plume of black smoke over the city of Arlington, Texas.

The flames at the still-under-construction Globe Life Field, ironically being named for an insurance company, started at about 2:30 p.m. and were out in about a half-hour. The Arlington Fire Department tweeted the fire was contained in the upper sections of the stadium.

There were no injuries reported, the department said, and the cause is under investigation.

Video posted online showed construction workers watching the flames from above.

The ballpark is slated to open March 31 with a game against the Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim.
