The Aymer J. Hamilton (AJH) building on campus was evacuated this morning, Feb. 1, after a fire alarm went off at approximately 9:55 a.m. Smoke was reported in the Room 108 suite area on the east side of AJH. All occupants of AJH were safely evacuated and no one was injured. Chico Fire Department responded to the alarm and located a small fire in an electrical box above the ceiling in the 108 suite. Firefighters put out the fire and are assessing damage to the area.

While the damage is isolated to the 108 suite, power is off throughout AJH. While electrical service and heat are being restored to AJH, the building will remain closed, so no classes, labs or meetings will take place in AJH today. Please go to the University home page, www.csuchico.edu, for an update on when the building will re-open.  If you need to get into AJH to retrieve any personal articles left behind in the evacuation, you should contact University Police at 898-5555. Thank you.
