ARLINGTON, Texas (AP) - A fire at the new Texas Rangers ballpark under construction sent black smoke through the stadium's retractable roof. The Arlington Fire Department says the fire was located and contained in the upper sections of the stadium. There were no injuries. The lead construction company on the project says materials staged in the roof area caught fire, but were quickly extinguished. It was unclear if the fire will cause any delays to work on the $1.2 billion stadium. The Rangers are scheduled to play an exhibition game there March 23. The first regular season home game is March 31.
