MANHATTAN -- The university is cleaning up and repairing damages after a small electrical fire in Weber Hall on Tuesday afternoon.

An electrical switch in the meats lab shorted out, igniting a small fire. Occupants evacuated Weber, and the Manhattan Fire Department extinguished the fire. Other than making it necessary to reinstall a light switch, the fire caused no other damages.
