A (Real!) Fire in Dodge

Written by

Just after the conclusion of the Japan benefit concert at Miller, a horde of fire trucks pulled up outside Dodge, in response to a real fire. After hearing from the FDNY that the source was a copier, a student developing photos in the darkroom in Dodge confirmed that a laser printer was the origin of the fire. He heard someone scream “fire!” and shortly after, everyone evacuated the building. The firefighters seemed to have cleared the scene pretty quickly, and were already exiting the building by the time Bwog arrived there.

Update (11:30): Bwog confirmed the story with the student who was working with the laser cutter in Dodge, and left it unattended. The student was very upset and asked to be kept anonymous. Firefighters still on the scene said it was a big fire.

They actually used the hydrant!

    "They actually used the hydrant!"

    ^^Slightly childish and unnecessary. Sometimes Bwog wants to go for the witty and peer-friendly vibe and just fails. But still love ya one compares.

  15. they should've...  

    used the motherfucking hydrant.

    That is totally mature and necessary.

  16. casey

    Yeah; there is a big difference between a laser printer and a laser cutter. Laser cutters cost like $10,000. And you should never leave them alone. So, yeah, the student is probably going to get in some trouble.

  17. i was there

    it didn't actually happen that they shouted "fire" and everyone left. the "fire alarm" in dodge was just the lights, there was no actually alarm, so everyone kept working out for five more minutes or so until the staff came and told us to leave. some ppl didn't even believe that it was a fire, one guy playing bball was arguing with the staff because he didn't want to leave. it took 5-10 minutes to get everyone out.

  18. lol  

    woops your right! my b
