One class canceled

One technology education class will be canceled today, following an electrical fire in the classroom, Room 160 of Wilber Hall.

The class is Section 520 of TEL 204, starting at 10:20 a.m. All other activities associated with Wilber Hall are not affected and will continue as scheduled. Students attending classes in Room 163 should use the north entrance to Wilber today.

The 2 a.m. fire was isolated to a small area of the classroom and was contained very quickly. All mechanical and safety systems in the building have been tested and are fully functioning.

Heat sensors triggered the fire alarm at 2:03 a.m., University Police reported. An officer on patrol was outside Wilber and was first on the scene. Firefighters from the Oswego city and town fire departments arrived within a few minutes and quickly contained the blaze, he said.
