fire fighters from the Lincoln
Fire Department.
The log caused enough heat,
according to John Unthank,
Phi Kappa Psi member, to
Ignite the floor below the brick
lining of the pit. The fire
burned directly over the ceil
ing of the chapter room, lo
cated in the Phi Psi basement,
and caused a burned area in
the ceiling about 15 feet in
diameter and extensive smoke
damage to the walls of the
room. I
Unthank said that when the
fire was discovered several!
of the men who were in the
house at the tame tried to fight
it with fire extinguishers.
When their efforst proved fu
tile, the fire department was
summoned at 8:37 p.m.
A smoke ejector was used
to remove the smoke which
filled the house and emerged
from the west attic window,
causing observers to believe I
teat the fare was located in
the dormitory room.
Xo financial estimate of the
damage is available at the
present time, according to
