OKLAHOMA CITY—Firefighters rushed to a high school baseball field Sunday afternoon after a suspicious fire broke out at a concession stand.

Crews responded to the Western Heights High School baseball field after receiving reports of smoke coming from the building.

It didn’t take crews long to get it under control although firefighters estimate the blaze did about $20,000 worth of damage to the building.

Officials say they suspect the fire was intentionally set.

The door to the concession stand was kicked in and investigators say it appears people were trying to steal items.
