Whoopi Goldberg Fire Incident

On Saturday, October 24, 2015, Casino New Brunswick had the pleasure of presenting ‘An Evening With Whoopi Goldberg’, an elite artist known for her accomplishments as a performer, author, producer and humanitarian. As the show was coming to a close, Goldberg along with the guests, had to evacuate the show theatre as a fire broke out on Goldberg’s tour bus that was parked behind the building. At the time of the incident, all guests evacuated the premises in a safe and orderly manner while local emergency crews attended to the fire. Casino New Brunswick would like to recognize the efforts of the local fire department and thank all our guests for their cooperation and understanding of this unforeseen event.
