The Fayetteville Fire and Emergency Management were called to McLeod Hall on the university’s campus at 1200 Murchison Road at about 3:15 p.m. in reference to a fire.

Upon arrival, firefighters found smoke coming from a dorm room on the fourth floor and discovered a small amount of clothing smoldering inside the room.
