Raptors, Pacers game suspended in 1st half due to ‘small electrical fire’ at Scotiabank Arena

The Toronto Raptors game against the visiting Indiana Pacers was suspended late in the first half due to a fire in Scotiabank Arena.

Fans were ordered to leave the building with 4:05 left in the first half, and the Raptors up 66-38.

Video showed one of the overhead speakers on fire.

A Raptors spokesperson described it as a “small electrical fire” above Section 103.

Several sections of fans behind one baseline were initially evacuated and the game continued, but several minutes later, after fire officials gathered with referees and teams on the court, the players headed to the locker-rooms.

Fans were instructed soon after to leave the building.
