Over the past month, five fires have been started in the men’s bathrooms in the Clark building and Chemistry building on campus and campus police are looking for information on possible suspects.
The first fire was reported at 4:34 p.m. on Thursday, Oct. 21 in the second-floor men’s room, on the South side of the A-wing in the Clark building. The second fire, about 30 minutes after the first was discovered, occurred in the third-floor men’s room, on the north side of the C-wing in Clark.
At approximately 5:45 p.m. on the same day two additional fires were reported. One was in the men’s room, on the first floor on the north side of the C-wing in Clark.
Nearly ten minutes later, another fire was set in the men’s room in the Chemistry Building, on the first floor by the lobby. These fires were identical in nature to the earlier fires.
At 3:05 p.m. on Friday, Nov. 12, an additional fire occurred in the second-floor men’s room, on the south side of the C-wing in Clark. All of the fires were set in plastic trash cans in the restrooms.
