Basement Fire Damages Second-Oldest Building At UWL
The original physical education building at U-W-L will be shut down for a while, because of a weekend fire.
On Saturday night, flames broke out in the basement of Wittich Hall, directly north of Main Hall. Nobody was hurt, and the cause of the fire isn't known yet. The Wittich fire happened less than two blocks from the football stadium, where thousands of people were gathered Saturday night for the Freedom Fest concert. Hetzel says the festival did not interfere with fire department activity.
