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!
