Roseland To Reopen

A two-alarm fire that broke out at New York City’s Roseland Ballroom March 8 was safely contained and the venue was expected to reopen at press time.

Six firefighters reportedly suffered minor injuries while battling the blaze, which began in the 3,500-capacity venue’s mezzanine level, according to reports.

No event was being held at the Ballroom at the time of the fire and an investigation into the cause is ongoing.

A Roseland employee told NYC’s Gothamist blog Roseland would reopen March 10.

Upcoming shows at the venue include Dropkick Murphys, Steve Aoki and Ke$ha.
