A quick follow up to today's Campus Fire Safety tip: An early morning fire on Portland Avenue in Saint Paul this morning highlights AGAIN the hazards of carelessly discarded smoking materials. 2-story, 5-unit apartment building....a cigarette discarded in a potted plant on a second floor balcony....potting soil caught fire hours later....Saint Paul Fire Department called out at 4:30 AM.... MORE THAN $10,000 DAMAGE DONE to the second floor of the building!! Please talk to your college students about the hazards of smoking - whether or not they are the smoker! Tim
