A fire in the Michigan Tech Archives on Friday closed down the facility. The archives are located on the garden level of the library and will remain closed until further notice.
Michigan Sate Police Fire Investigators are continuing to work to determine the cause of the fire, which is unknown at this time.
Reports say most of the damage was caused by water from the library’s sprinkler system, which was activated automatically when the fire was detected.
The investigation is ongoing to evaluate total damages.
