Experiment goes awry on University of Michigan North Campus; lab room fire extinguished

Firefighters were called to a fire at the Francios Xavier Bagnoud Building at 1320 Beal Ave. at 6:03 p.m., a Fire Department Press release said.

Upon their arrival, a member of the University of Michigan College of Engineering Emergency Response Team led firefighters to the lab room, where seals in a chamber where a student was conducting an experiment had failed, causing a fire, the release said.

Hydrogen and oxygen gasses used to fuel the experiment as well as electrical power sources were turned off and the fire was put out with a chemical fire extinguisher.

Damage was estimated at $1,000, the press release said.
