There’s another bump in the road for the Hamilton Tiger-Cats’ new stadium.

There was a small fire at Tim Hortons Field at around 3:30 a.m. on Saturday. It is reported to have been in a mechanical room and quickly extinguished.

The cause is still unknown but should not have any impact on whether or not the stadium will be ready for the Labour Day Classic, which will be the first football game hosted at Tim Honrtons Field.

The brand new $145-million stadium is still waiting on final occupancy permits but the City of Hamilton is set to give final word on Sunday afternoon if the game is a go.

The match is set for September 2 at 1 p.m. featuring the Ticats taking on the Toronto Argos.

If the stadium is not ready in time, the Argo’s will host the game at the Rogers Centre.
