University West Building closed until noon Friday due to ongoing fire investigation

VICTORIA, Texas – A report of a fire at the University of Houston-Victoria campus had Victoria firefighters up late – working through the night to figure out the source. Travis Gundelach, a police sergeant with the University of Houston Police Department shares more.

“Well at about 10 o’clock tonight, Victoria Fire Department responded to a report of a fire at our University West Building,” Gundelach said. “An investigation revealed that there was smoke in the building, they are currently trying to ventilate the building and make sure there are no poisonous gases or anything like that inside before we go in and conduct a more detailed investigation.”

As of the midnight hours of Friday, until they can discover the source, the building will be closed until at least noon Friday. An update will be provided before then to let people know when the building will be available for use again, Gundelach said.
