Grass Fire Forces Evacuation of U. of Mary

April 15, 2015

The University of Mary, in North Dakota, evacuated its entire campus Tuesday because of a rapidly spreading grass fire that came quite close to the campus. The university reported late Tuesday night that the fire appeared to have passed by the campus, but that the campus would remain closed until this morning as a safety measure. Some University of Mary students were relocated to the United Tribes Technical College. This Bismarck Tribune article features a dramatic photograph showing how close the fire came to the campus.
