Early this morning, a fire sprinkler pipe burst on the sixth floor of Lakeview South Residence Hall on the Modesto Maidique Campus. While no one was hurt, the building was evacuated.
Residence hall managers are working with facilities personnel and contractors to assess the damage. The clean-up and drying out process has already begun and it is expected that most affected students will be back in their rooms by this evening.
Students directly impacted by this situation will receive subsequent updates and information regarding damage to personal property and academic issues specific to them.
