Fire Departments Responded to Fire On Hanover College Campus

Storage area at Ide Hall

Monday morning at approximately 10:16 AM, Campus Safety received a call from a custodian that the fire alarm was going off in Ide Hall and that they smelled smoke. Upon the arrival of the Campus Safety Officer, he observed smoke and flame in the rear storage area of The Other Place and the officer contacted the fire department.

The fire occurred in one of the storage lockers and was confined to the storage area. The fire department quickly extinguished the fire. There were no injuries reported.

The fire investigator advised that the fire appeared to be caused by a short in the electrical system. There was no damage to the dorm area of Ide Hall but there was smoke that entered the area.

Both Ide Hall and Donner Hall will be closed until further notice. The fire department has released the building back to the college. The building will be reopened once cleanup and inspections have been completed.
