Tanner Ostensen, 22, communications major: “There was a utility closet fire in the Math Building on Thursday. They cleared everybody out of the building, all floors were cleared. The only problem was that they were still clearing people about 20 minutes later when everyone was supposed to be cleared. It just took awhile. What if the fire actually spread? Those people might not be here.”
