(BLOOMINGTON) - A fire at Wells Library on Tuesday evening is under investigation as arson.

The flames engulfed a paper towel dispenser hanging on the wall in the east tower's 10th floor men's restroom, setting off the smoke detectors.

IU Police Department Capt. Andy Stephenson says shortly after that someone pulled a fire alarm.

The fire left black burn marks where the paper towel dispenser hung, reaching from the floor to the ceiling.
