Fire extinguished in Frick chemistry building
Fire broke out in an equipment room in the Frick chemistry building early Friday morning, March 23. The building's sprinkler system held the fire in check, and a firefighter put it out with a fire extinguisher.
A graduate student reported the fire to the Department of Public Safety about 1:40 a.m. Firefighters from the municipality of Princeton, Princeton Junction, the Princeton Plasma Physics Laboratory, Plainsboro and Rocky Hill came to campus.
The fire was contained to a third-floor room used for storage and housing refrigeration equipment. No hazardous materials were involved.
The building was closed briefly and has reopened.
