A dryer fire sent the New York Yankees team scattering around their clubhouse on Sunday, reports Wall Street Journal reporter Daniel Barbarisi.

Preparing for the 2014 season, the Yankees were in Dunedin to play a Grapefruit League game against the Toronto Blue Jays.

The Yankees blasted the Blue Jays 8-2 in the game as Carlos Beltran homered for his first hit this spring.

However, although avoiding problems on the field, they met some rather more troubling issues in the clubhouse after the game.

Barbarisi tweeted yesterday: "There was a minor dryer fire in Yankee clubhouse in Dunedin. Carlos Beltran said the clubhouse got smoky.

"Players gathered their stuff but didn't actually evacuate. Said they got freaked out for a few minutes but it ended up being no big deal."

CBS Sports reports that other news outlets confirmed that the Yankees players did indeed have to evacuate the building following the fire.

Conflicting reports mean the seriousness of the situation is unclear but the important thing is that everyone is ok.

The dryer, however, is believed to have perished.
