UMM Science Building briefly evacuated
A chemical experiment that caused a small flare-up and smoke led officials to evacuate the University of Minnesota, Morris Science Building Wednesday afternoon.
Morris firefighters received the call just after 4 p.m., said Fire Chief Doug Storck. At about 4:45 p.m., students, staff and professors were allowed back in the building.
Students apparently placed material in a sink that caused the reaction. UMM Police, campus environmental staff, the Morris Fire Department, Morris Police and the Stevens County Ambulance Service responded to the call.
