BREAKING: Small fire broke out at Roy G. Cullen overnight
A small fire broke out at Roy G. Cullen overnight causing damage to one classroom.
The fire, which began at 2 a.m., started when a motor on a blower caught fire. The blower and a dehumidifier were placed in the classroom Monday evening when a leak was discovered, University spokesman Mike Rosen said.
The building will remain open today except for rooms 110-114. Four of those rooms are classrooms and one is a conference room. Classes in those rooms are canceled today, Rosen said.
The University hopes to have the rooms operational tomorrow, Rosen said.
A burnt smell lingers in the building.
