More than 150 firefighters battled a fire that broke out at the convention center beginning Oct. 22, 2019, after a roll of roofing sheet was exposed to flame from a worker’s gas torch.

Hundreds of people were evacuated from nearby buildings and downtown streets surrounding the site were closed for days. The fire turned out to be accidental.
