The highly anticipated concert of Christian Rapper TobyMac has been rescheduled due to a fire outbreak that happened at the venue where the event was taking place.
Denver Fire Department spokesman Captain Greg Pixley told PEOPLE by explaining that the fire incident happened on Thursday evening around 6:15 p.m. at Denver, Colorado’s Ball Arena. This forced the performer and his associates to evacuate the venue ahead of the concert.
Fortunately, no casualties were recorded. This has been confirmed by the Ball Arena press release. Everyone came out safely. TobyMac, in a message expressed his gratefulness for not hearing about any injuries.
Pixely explained that the building’s sprinkler system extinguished the fire before it could go any further. Pixley, again said the fire was reportedly caused by a food warmer that malfunctioned.

“My Mile High friends…..we will be back, hopefully soon. We will make it happen,” he continued. “What God has put together let no flames put asunder! Glad everyone is safe. Thank you Denver fire dept. So bummed but see you soon.”
It is not too late for fans to witness Christian TobyMac’s concert. It has now been rescheduled for March 9.
