REVERE, Mass. (AP) _ The chief operating officer of Suffolk Downs race track says there have been no injuries to people or horses in a three-alarm fire at a track kitchen building.
       
Chip Tuttle said in a statement Tuesday evening the track expects to open its live racing season Saturday as planned.
       
Suffolk Downs said the three-alarm fire was brought under control about three hours after it was reported at 5:30 p.m. Revere firefighters are remaining on the scene.        
 
Television news aerial photos earlier showed flames and smoke coming through the roof of the large, one-story building.
       
Tuttle said no horses are kept in the building, and those in nearby barns were relocated as a precaution. Tuttle thanked workers for their "quick thinking'' and "amazing work'' by firefighters.
       
Mohegan Sun has proposed building a resort casino on the property.
