CAMPUS FIRE: Students were surprised as they exited their Thursday morning classes on Oct. 31. They walked into a smoke filled campus. A moderate sized fire started in the maintenance room below the Tech B building and was promptly handled by Riverside Fire Department. “The fire happened right next to the Theater Studio,” said Adriana Freiling, Viewpoints photographer on the scene. “Three fire trucks showed up (along with) three patrol cars and the firefighters were able to control the fire.” ASRCC confirmed early reports of the fire on their twitter.
