ESU Building Evacuated Due to Fire

Courtesy: Shay

A building on the Emporia State campus was temporarily evacuated this afternoon after a fire near-by.

A viewer sent us this picture of roofing material on a trailer parked near the health, physical education and recreation building that caught fire shortly before 2 p.m.

ESU personnel activated the building's fire alarm and emergency lights and evacuated it as a precaution.

Emporia fire crews quickly put the blaze out and the building reopened about 20 minutes later.
