Omaha firefighters who weren't battling an apartment fire Tuesday night were fighting a fire at Baxter Arena.
 
A food warmer overheated and caught fire around 11 Tuesday night. A security officer in the arena smelled something burning and called the fire department. Firefighters quickly put out the fire. However, they did have to ventilate smoke from the arena.
