Fire at KUA (updated)

Staff and students have returned after electrical fire broke out, say sources

A fire has broken out near Auditorium 16 at the Faculty of Humanities KUA, say sources.

An photographer was under the impression that it was a fire drill, but to the University Post, Annette Pedersen tweets that she has heard that it was possibly a real electrical fire near the Saxo institute (the history department).

»But we’re back in the building now,« she says.

The Faculty of Humanities, says it was a short-circuit that had started the fire, sending smoke out into the auditorium. The auditorium could not be used right away, but was made ready for the following day.

Firemen were on the scene after ten minutes, the Faculty reports.
