Students Relocated After Campus Fire

Fire fighters were able to contain the flames to just two rooms, but students on the third and fourth floors were evacuated. Families were moved to other campus apartments, and single students have been relocated to Mills Hall. And the Red Cross was on hand to provide lunch and a place to stay until everyone got their new assignments.
Indiana State University students have been relocated after a fire broke out in a campus apartment building on Tuesday.

Officials say students on the fourth floor were burning incense as part of a religious observation when the blaze started.

"You may have never had a home fire before but I've done this 100 times this past year, so I can tell you what the next steps are. A lot of them had some questions about what they doing something is the damaged, or how they get things back, and we're able to answer those questions, and will still be here to answer any questions or see what types of services we need to provide," said Nikki Wessley of the Wabash Valley Red Cross.

No one was injured in the fire.
