Resident head and University staff member Avi Schwab, AB'03, took a number of pictures of the Math-Stat Building fire last night. See the whole tragedy here.
Thankfully, the building wasn't occupied, and there was only one minor injury (a firefighter was hit by falling debris). But this is still a major setback for the Physical Sciences Division, which was renovating the building as the new home of the mathematics and statistics departments and the Stevanovich Center for Financial Mathematics. The cause of the fire is still under investigation.
