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.
