ASUAF board fire
Sometime between Friday, Jan. 28, at 11:30 p.m. and Saturday, Jan. 29, at 10:30 a.m., the ASUAF recycling board was set on fire. According to Police Chief Sean McGee, the fire is seen to be malicious and an act of vandalism. Jeri Maxwell, Wood Center Director of Operations, believes the fire was accidental, due to the fire being put out before the entire board was burned. No one was injured and no damages were made to the Wood Center. Although no witnesses have stepped forward at this time, the University Police department is continuing its investigation.
