LEXINGTON, Ky. (Nov. 7, 2012) — In the interest of safety, the University of Kentucky Police Department has issued the following Crime Bulletin for the UK community.    

 

On Wednesday, Nov. 7, 2012, it was reported to UK Police that a fire had occurred on the previous evening of Nov. 6 at approximately 10:30 p.m. in the 1st floor bathroom of Kirwan 1 Residence Hall.  It was indicated that the 1st floor bathroom had a strong burning smell with burned toilet paper and ash residue. 

 

During the course of the investigation, UK Police discovered that two additional fire incidents had recently occurred in Kirwan 1 Residence Hall.  On Oct. 27, 2012, it was noticed that a portion of poster board located in the basement of Kirwan 1 Residence Hall had been burned.  On Nov. 1, 2012, burned paper towels were discovered near the trash can in the 2nd floor bathroom of Kirwan 1 Residence Hall. 

 

Each of these incidents is independent of one another, and each fire appeared to have been extinguished prior to its discovery. No injuries have been reported as a result of these incidents.

 

If anyone has any information regarding this incident, please contact UK Police at (859) 257-8573.
