The UNT Police Department is conducting an investigation after responding to a reported arson at Victory Hall on Sunday, April 19.

At 1 a.m. police arrived after receiving a call about someone lighting posters on fire in the hallways of the dorm. No injuries were reported, and no property damages occurred other than the burned posters, according to the UNT crime alert.

The initial investigation indicates that the posters were set on fire around 10:20 p.m. Saturday night. This is not the first time police have responded to a call regarding arson at Victory Hall. There was a similar case involving burnt posters reported on March 30.

UNT Police Detective John DeLong was not able to make any further comments about the incident because the investigation is ongoing. The identity of the individual who burned the posters is unknown.

This is a developing story.
