Bingham fire’s cause remains unknown

The cause of a fire that occurred in Bingham Hall on Old Campus at approximately 6 p.m. on Sunday night is still under investigation.

Yale Fire Marshall Michael Johns said officials have not yet been determined if the fire was set intentionally or was an accident.

“There’s not that much I can say publicly right now about the investigation,” he said. “But we are taking appropriate steps based on the information we have at this time.”

Johns said the fire, which cleared the hall for nearly an hour, caused no injuries and minor damage to the first floor of entryway C.
