Fire causes scare at USM Liberal Arts Building

Folks at USM got a quick scare Wednesday afternoon after a small electrical fire broke out on campus.

Witnesses say a fire erupted around a recessed lighting fixture in the second floor ceiling of the Liberal Arts Building. A faculty member put out the flames with a fire extinguisher before it could spread.

As a precaution, the building was evacuated, but nobody was injured.
