Fire Closes Moncton Sports Dome Closed

A fire last night has forced the Moncton Sports Dome to close its doors. Firefighters responded to the blaze in the office section of the multi-purpose indoor sports facility on Russ Howard Drive around 9pm. The Times and Transcript is reporting that the fire was limited to the offices, located in a mini-home in front of the facility, and that the sports dome itself was not damaged. Dome officials closed the facility for today and it’s unclear when it will reopen.
