Small fire at UNT caused classes to be canceled until Wednesday night
No one was hurt.
DENTON An electrical fire caused a power outage in Wooten Hall on UNT's campus at 7 a.m. Wednesday morning, forcing the building to be closed and all classes canceled until 6 p.m., facilities technician Ralph Harpool said.
Facility crews were performing routine maintenance and replacing a meter early Wednesday morning when a fuse caught fire and triggered the outage. No one was injured, and crews from Denton Municipal Electric and UNT worked to replace the burnt fuse, zone maintenance supervisor Ron Davis said.
UPDATE: The power was turned back on in Wooten at 3:05 p.m. Evening classes will continue as scheduled.
