Game 6 of PBA Governor’s Cup finals postponed as fire hits Araneta Coliseum

A Wednesday noon fire hit the decades-old Araneta Coliseum in Cubao, Quezon City.

Firefighters raised the first alarm over the iconic Big Dome owned by the bilyonaryo Araneta-Roxas clan. Initial reports from the Bureau of Fire Protection said the fire started about 11:49 a.m., which was placed under control about an hour later.

BFP personnel later on declared fire at 1:08 p.m., with a ceiling fire cited as the cause of the blaze. No one was reported injured, although the ongoing 3×3 game of the Philippine Basketball Association (PBA) had to be stopped.

PBA management eventually decided to postpone the scheduled PBA Finals Game 6 between Ginebra and Meralco on the same day to make way for clearing operations.
