BREAKING NEWS BRIEF

Around 6:45 p.m. Monday, students were evacuated from Bruce Hall due to an electrical burn in the basement of the newly remodeled Bruce cafeteria.

“We were eating in the cafeteria and someone came over the intercom system and said there was an electrical fire in the basement,” freshman Andrew Salivarria said. “As we were walking out, the fire alarm went off. No one knew what was going on. It was like being in a herd of cattle, but the staff was very good and ushered us out calmly.”

According to a Bruce cafeteria staff member, the burn was caused by old wiring in a component of an elevator in the dish return system.

“We have an elevator that’s really old,” the staff member said. “It basically, for lack of a better term, blew up. It’s nothing big. It had to do with the stress of so many dishes on the elevator.”

No one was injured and the staff member said safety circuits will most likely be installed to prevent another electrical problem.
