PHOTOS: Fire breaks out in Saint Mary's auditorium
Saint Mary's College is assessing the damage after an overnight fire at an auditorium on campus.
The fire started just before 1 a.m. in the Moreau Center for the Arts. Crews from Notre Dame and South Bend Clay responded to the incident, but we are told campus security was able to take care of most of the flames.
A media spokesperson for the college says there was a lot of smoke damage. It was mainly contained to a storage room for sets and costumes for theater productions.
Right now crews still do not know what caused the fire.
¿This is just an unfortunate fire and we are just trying to figure out what happened,¿ said Saint Mary¿s media spokesperson Gwen O'Brien.
Right now school officials do not know how much damage there is to the theater equipment. Next week, Saint Mary's is scheduled to start their production of the Secret Garden in the auditorium.
