ST. GEORGE, Utah (AP) – Officials with a Utah State University extension in St. George say a fire did major damage to their building and the supplies inside.
Firefighters responded to the USU Washington County Extension about 9 a.m. Wednesday, after the lights went out and staff members noticed flames coming from a ceiling vent in a bathroom.
Three people were inside the building and safely escaped.
USU staff assistance Laurie Terry says it appears all the supplies in the building were damaged.
The top executive at the extension, Paul Hill, tells KSL he thinks damages could mount to hundreds of thousands of dollars.
