An electrical fire at Health Sciences North this afternoon (Sept. 22) has caused the evacuation of both Health Sciences North and South. There were no injuries, but all Health Sciences North and South classes have been canceled for the rest of the day and evening and employees were sent home.

Employees and students should be able to return to their workplaces and classes on Tuesday morning. Stay tuned to local news reports and the MIX for updated information.

In the meantime, students with medical emergencies should go to the Ruby Memorial Hospital Emergency Room; Student Health is closed.

Housing staff and faculty are also advised that many students that evacuated the facilities had to leave books, room keys and personal items behind and may need assistance with residence hall access and class assignments.
