Upon their arrival, they observed students around one of the barbecue grills who were attempting to light the fire. After speaking with the students it was determined they used too much paper to start the barbecue and the fire was extinguished by Public Safety. No damages were reported.
Kicking never solves anything. On Wednesday, March 2 at 11:37 a.m., Public Safety was dispatched to Fine Arts to meet with staff from the Office of Information Technology regarding a damaged copier printer.
