Fire At Hampshire Displaces Dozens

(Amherst, MA) — About three-dozen Hampshire College students have been displaced by fire. The Greenwich Residence Hall caught fire Sunday afternoon and was quickly put out. Later a student told Hampshire police he had put his sweater in the microwave to dry, doused it with water when it burst into flames, then put it outside thinking it was extinguished. The official cause of the fire has yet to be determined.
