ELKHART A popular Elkhart nightclub has been shut down for serious fire code violations.

Inspectors say The Arena, located at the old Rainbo Lanes bowling alley on Middlebury Street, is a recipe for disaster. Among the infractions – no sprinkler system, no handicap exits and more than a dozen portable toilets placed inside a garage.

There's a long list of other violations, and officials tell The Elkhart Truth the club will be closed for several weeks while the owners bring it up to code.
