*Breaking* Fire Dept. Called To Strong

Five firetrucks, security and B&G vehicles are outside of Strong right now.

A group of firemen were spotted leaving the private professor's entrance saying something about needing a "fan" to "suck it out." Someone also said they saw smoke.

In front of the building a fireman was turning cars away and was also spotted near the fire hydrant.

Update 4:23: Firemen still aren't letting any cars through. Even the community shuttle just had to make a U-turn.

Update 4:30: All security and fire department vehicles are now gone. Still not sure what the problem was. When we asked security if they could tell us what happened they responded, "Uhh...not really."

Update 8pm: The fire alarm went off in Main at around 6pm and in Jewett at 8pm. As for the Strong incident, a student tells Mads: "One of the firemen told us that apparently Eva, one of the House Fellows, had been sterlizing some bottles for her son and they had melted. She wasn't home and the smoke from the melting/burning plastic bottles set off the smoke detectors."
