Hot art department

Heat from a kiln in the Fine Arts Building at California State University, Bakersfield is suspected of causing a fire in a wall in the building Friday morning. As a result of the fire and additional, but necessary, damage caused by the Fire Department in putting the fire out, the Fine Arts Building will be closed until further notice, CSUB police chief Brian Baker said.

No injuries occurred, Baker said. He said damage estimates have not yet been compiled, and that investigators are working to determine the exact cause of the fire.
