Trash fire leads to evacuation of Naismith Hall

October 26, 2001


A trash fire in a fifth floor stairwell at Naismith Hall forced the evacuation of Kansas University students shortly after 4 a.m. Friday.

Students who live in the privately owned residence hall at 19th Street and Naismith Drive were sent across the street to KU's Oliver Hall while fire crews searched the building and cleared the smoke from the upper floors.

Naismith residents were allowed back in their rooms at 5:19 a.m. Friday.
