Fire causes damage
A small fire in the roof of Maury Hall on April 12, sparked
by workers using heat guns to remove paint, was quickly contained.
No one was injured, and damage was mostly limited to the buildings
façade and the ceiling of one office. Damage estimates
were not available early this week, said University fire marshall
from the paint-removing guns ignited some cotton behind the wooden
facing just under Maurys roof. The building was briefly
evacuated while two engines from the Charlottesville Fire Department,
on the scene in minutes, extinguished the fire. The building reopened
by 3 p.m., less than two hours after the fire was reported.
