Browns stadium could be potential fire hazard

Browns stadium could be potential fire hazard”

Construction on FirstEnergy Stadium began in 1997 and was completed in 1999.

However, according to a Thursday morning report from Juliet Linderman, Jason Dearen and Jeff Martin of the Associated Press, the stadium could contain some unsafe materials.

The Cleveland Browns' FirstEnergy Stadium may contain the same aluminum paneling that British authorities suggest could be the cause of the fatal apartment building fire in London last month, according to the Associated Press. The Browns' home field is identified in Arconic's brochures as one of the structures that are "wrapped in Reynobond PE".

United Kingdom and London authorities are investigating the potential role those composite, polyethylene-core panels may have played in the blaze.

In that horrific incident which killed at least 80, fire investigators concluded the decorative aluminum panels which lined the building were a culprit in the fire spreading quickly throughout the 24-story residential tower. The Reynobond panels are known to be combustible and are therefore not recommended for use in buildings over four stories high.

The Cleveland Browns are often referred to as a dumpster fire of an National Football League franchise, but it turns out their stadium may actually be a fire hazard.

Arconic, the company that produces the panels, specializes in lightweight metals. "Anybody who is inside of these buildings has a right to know".

The stadium in Cleveland also qualifies as a venue no longer permitted for the polyethylene composite panels.
