uRegina students evacuated from exams during fire

December 16, 2007

Hundreds of University of Regina students were evacuated late last week when a fire started in one of the school's labs. A professor and student pulled the fire alarm when they were unable to contain the fire. Although no one was injured, one individual was taken to the hospital for observation. Students were forced to evacuate just minutes before completing an exam but will not be given extra time; the lost time will be taken into account when marking the tests.
