Fire Burns Landmark Citgo Sign

Sign Located Near Fenway Park

The Boston Red Sox's season isn't quite up in flames -- but a small fire at one of the most visible landmarks near Fenway Park can't be a good omen.

The fire Wednesday blackened some of the panels on the red, white and blue Citgo sign visible over Fenway's Green Monster, its left field wall.

Fire department spokesman Steve MacDonald said flames were visible when firefighters got there, but the fire was quickly put out.

MacDonald said the blaze was likely caused by an electrical short circuit and estimated the damage at about $5,000.

The Green Monster has seen several balls soar over it in recent days. Boston trails Tampa 3-1 in the best-of-seven American League Championship Series.
