    May 14th, 2013

    The University of Oregon Police Department reported at 11:27 a.m. Tuesday that a fire had been put out at the Hamilton complex.

    The Office of the State Fire Marshal will investigate.

    Earlier in the day, University of Oregon Emergency Management and Continuity received notification that Dunn Hall (Hamilton) had been evacuated as well as the kitchen in that complex. The report was of a fire in a garbage can in the basement.
    Fire trucks responded.

    “A small fire started in the basement of Dunn hall and the residence hall was evacuated,” university spokesperson Phil Weiler said. “The fire is out and Eugene fire is now venting smoke out fo the building so that people can return to their rooms.”

    Located on the eastern edge of campus across from Bean, Hamilton is a complex of 10 smaller halls housing nearly 800 students.
