False alarm at Cunningham Hall

DKS Editors

Smoke came from the incinerator

Smoke from Cunningham Hall that witnesses thought might be from a fire was actually a harmless release of the building’s incinerator.

Kent firefighters and Kent State police responded at about 5 p.m. Wednesday to a call that someone had spotted smoke coming from the roof.

Two firefighters checked out rooms on the third floor of Cunningham Hall where the incinerator is located as two fire trucks and two Kent State police cruisers waited in parking lots.
