Small fire at Flint's Riverfront Residence Hall forces evacuations

Posted: Updated:

(10/24/12) - The first half of the Tigers game was interrupted for some UM-Flint students Wednesday, with an order to evacuate their residence hall.

A call came into 911 around 7:45 p.m. Wednesday evening from campus security about a fire at the Riverfront Hall in downtown Flint.

ABC12 arrived on scene to find dozens of students standing outside and a couple fire trucks out front.

Building officials say a small kitchen fire on the 12th floor is to blame.

A bit of smoke filled the hallways and sprinklers were set off, causing a bit of water damage.

No one was hurt and most of the students were eventually allowed back in after each floor was cleared.

Some rooms had more extensive damage and Riverfront officials found another place for those tenants to stay.
