SAN ANTONIO (AP) - More than 100 students have been displaced
from their dormitory after a fire damaged a historic building on
the campus of Our Lady of the Lake University.
San Antonio Fire Chief Charles Hood said arson investigators are
looking into the cause.
The blaze broke out last night in the Main Building, which
housed a dorm and administrative offices.
Everyone was evacuated from the building and no injuries were
School officials canceled this morning's classes.
Students say there has been false fire alarms for weeks. A bomb
threat was discovered in a bathroom on Monday and led to an
evacuation, but nothing was found. A trash can fire also was
reported earlier in a building across the street from the one that
burned. It was quickly doused.
