Minor fire at visitor service centre
A fire inside the Bermuda Tourism Authorityís new visitor service centre on Front Street yesterday had to be tackled by firefighters.
The minor blaze, caused by welding work, damaged a bathroom ceiling but no one was injured.
The BTA said the three-storey centre near the ferry terminal was still on course to open later this week.
The alarm was raised just before 1pm and work on the centre resumed later that afternoon.
The centre, built from shipping containers used for the 2017 Americaís Cup Artemis team headquarters, will serve visitors from the ground floor.
The other two floors will be used for events and concessions.
