Hartley Fire Alarm Set Off…By a Frickin’ Laundry Machine
Written by Bwog Staff
For about the past half an hour, freshman students were marooned outside Hartley, Wallach and John Jay after a rogue washing machine in Hartley caught fire.
“I was going to do my laundry in the Hartley laundry room, and it was filled with smoke.” A few minutes later, “The entire hall was filled with smoke,” said the freshman who first encountered the flaming cleaner of clothes. Public safety is now letting students back in, though they initially said the wait would be closer to an hour. Students reentering John Jay have noticed that the stairwells smell heavily of smoke.
We were under the impression that laundromats were way more fun.
