Thomas Lab re-opened after small fire

Occupants were allowed back inside Thomas Laboratory on Princeton's campus shortly before 11:30 a.m. Tuesday, March 23, after a small oven fire prompted the evacuation of the building.

No injuries were reported, and the fire was extinguished around 11 a.m., a half-hour after the evacuation.

Local fire officials and the University's Department of Public Safety responded. The fire had been contained to a drying oven in a room in the building. The cause is under investigation.

The building, located in the southern part of Princeton's campus off Washington Road, houses classrooms, laboratories and academic department offices.
