The UAF Fire department responded to a fire in the Cutler apartment complex at 11:05 p.m. Thursday night.
The cause of the fire is unknown as of now, but it appeared to be coming from the kitchen of an apartment in the 400 block, near the RA office.
A fire alarm rang throughout the Cutler complex for several minutes before the firetrucks showed up. About 30 students stepped out of their apartments to see what was happening.
There were initially two fire trucks and an ambulance on the scene, and a third truck arrived ten minutes later.
The UFD was not available for comment.
