Science Building Reopens

Part of the science building that caught fire Sunday night at Wesleyan University is back open Tuesday.  A fire started in one of the labs at the Hall-Atwater building while a student was performing an experiment.  A chemical reaction sparked the blaze under a fume hood, according to fire officials.  A firefighter and two public safety officers suffered minor injuries and have been treated at the hospital and released.  The lab where the fire happened, along with several surrounding classrooms, were heavily damaged and will remain closed.
