A small leaf fire occurred outside Hillcrest Residence Hall over the weekend.

The Iowa City Fire Department responded to reports of smoke in a west side stairwell around 11:30 p.m Jan. 20, according to Battalion Chief Brian Greer. Greer said officials later found the source of the smoke were burning leaves, which filtered into the building through a nearby outside air duct. Greer said a cigarette caused the small leaf fire.

Smoking is not allowed on the University of Iowa campus.
