    Sixteen large fans that kept the domes fabric roof aloft were shut down Wednesday morning, allowing the roof to deflate and fall within about 50 feet of the stadium floor. The dome near downtown Indianapolis is being demolished, now that the Indianapolis Colts have moved to the nearby Lucas Oil Stadium. Former Mayor Bill Hudnut gave the order to shut off the fans. The 8-acre roof took about 35 minutes to deflate.
