Fire in EBA

A small fire in the Education and Business Administration building Wednesday morning forced students and faculty to evacuate.

“The alarm was due to a mishap with an appliance, causing it to catch fire,” San Diego State Police Cpl. Mark Peterson said.

No injuries were reported and the fire was quickly extinguished.

Methane gas smell at Tony Gwynn Stadium

There was a smell of gas and something burning early last Friday morning at Tony Gwynn Stadium.

Parents of a San Diego State student reportedly smelled methane gas, according to a San Diego State Police Department media bulletin.

San Diego Gas and Electric was contacted and responded to the incident. After searching for the smell they found a minor malfunction in the area.

“There was no safety concern for the public during this time,” Peterson said.

SDG&E evaluated the issue and repaired the leak.
