Demolition Resumes After MSU Building Catches Fire


EAST LANSING, Mich. (AP) - Demolition of a 113-year-old building on Michigan State University's campus has resumed after a fire burned through its roof.

The fire burned Wednesday evening at Morrill Hall on the north end of campus. No one was injured and the building was empty at the time.

Cause of the fire hasn't been determined, but reports foul play isn't suspected. Demolition work started earlier this year.

Nicknamed "The Coop," Morrill Hall once was a dormitory for female students and also housed home economics classrooms. It was converted in the 1930s to classroom space and named for Justin S. Morrill, a former U.S. senator who pushed to establish land grant universities.
