The Caesars Superdome, home of the New Orleans Saints, is apparently on fire right now. Like, burning through the roof?
This is nuts, and hopefully remains a very small and quickly-containable thing:

No word yet on how this happened, how extensive the fire is, or whether there are any injuries. The Saints are supposed to return to the Superdome on October 3. More updates soon.
UPDATE: First and foremost, the fire appears to be out:

UPDATE 2: Unfortunately one person did have to be taken to the hospital with minor burns, per ESPN. The damage done by the fire did not impact any structural integrity.
