Statement from Miles College on Dormitory Fire Incident
 
At approximately 8:30 p.m., a fire broke out in Murchison Hall—an all men’s dormitory on the campus of Miles College. The fire was isolated to a single room. Area fire departments and emergency services responded immediately.

The fire has been extinguished and crews are evaluating the cause of the fire and assessing the damage.
 
Three students were transported to local hospitals with minor injuries, one related to the fire and two non-related. 
 
All impacted residents are being accommodated with alternative on-campus housing options. 
 
Miles College is grateful to the Fairfield, Birmingham and Midfield Fire Departments for their swift response.
