If possible, officials encourage occupants to avoid entering the building until Tuesday, Sept. 2 – following the Labor Day holiday weekend – to allow the building time to air out.

UD officials said the fire started in and was confined to a piece of laboratory equipment on the first floor of the building on Academy Street, with smoke spreading throughout the structure.
