first_imgFire broke out at Wolfson College around 7.30 on Sunday 15th June in one of the on-site accommodation blocks. The fire is believed to have been started by a grill being left on in one of the kitchens, although Fire investigators are seeking to confirm this. A student at Wolfson told Cherwell that the fire was limited to the flat, and was initially spotted by another student who alerted residents to the fire. Incident commander Nigel Wilson told the Oxford Mail that “the actual seat of the fire and the communal area were very badly damaged – the flats only suffered smoke and heat damage.” At least three fire engines were reportedly in attendance as well as an ambulance. There was concern over one female student remaining unaccounted for, with firefighters having to enter the building through a third floor window to search rooms in the block. It later emerged the missing student had been sleeping elsewhere. No one was injured in the incident.last_img read more
