SALT LAKE CITY — A fire in an electrical shed near the East High School football field forced an evacuation of the bleachers and halted play on the field Friday night.

The football game between Jordan and East High was stopped in the third quarter. An electrical box was damaged, but no other damage was caused to the building.

The stadium was evacuated as a precaution, said Jasen Asay, Salt Lake City Fire Department spokesman. Officials postponed the game indefinitely.
