A shed holding sports equipment at Salas Park Sports Complex caught fire early Friday evening.
At approximately, 5:15 p.m., Lodi firefighters responded to a call at the park where football players who were about to begin practice saw the shed was smoking, said Battalion Chief Ron Penix.
Penix said the players opened the shed and saw that there were flames inside, then shut the door and called the fire department.
Firefighters arrived on scene and were able to put out the fire, Penix added.
The source of the fire is still under investigation.
