Some damage to Fuller Hall student residence, just downwind of the library, but doesn't look too bad:

And no effective fire suppression?
I have it on good authority that the library fire protection worked and saved the rare collection(s).

I doubt fire suppression will be effective if the entire building is on fire from the outside.
Roller shutter doors, fireproof containment, etc.


A lot of assumptions being made here, interesting..
