This is bad. The New Orleans Fire Department responded to a two-alarm fire at the Caesars Superdome on Tuesday after the stadium’s roof caught fire. Work crews were already on the roof with pressure washers, preparing it to be repainted before the next New Orleans Saints home game on Oct. 3. No cause was immediately available nor were any injuries reported. Hopefully everyone working on the roof remained safe.
Photos and video were shared widely on social media before the fire was quickly put out once emergency responders arrived:
