UNCW warns students about intentionally set fires

WILMINGTON, NC (WECT) - UNC Wilmington sent out a notice to students on campus late Thursday that there have been two fires intentionally set in the last day.

Both fires caused minimal damage and were extinguished quickly. However, a state inspector ruled the fires to be intentionally set and the university is required to warn students of these incidents.

The first fire was on the grass near the Seahawk Landing around 11 p.m. Wednesday. Officials say a vehicle nearby had minor damage in the fire. The second fire included a partly burned and extinguished cloth that was in the travel lane of the parking deck. There was no damage to property or people.

The NC State Bureau of Investigation and Wilmington Fire Department are assisting in the investigation.
