Police: 3 fires in OU dormitory were arson
(WOUB) - Ohio University police say three fires in a residence hall are the work of an arsonist and appear related.

The fires in Martzolff House happened last week: Tuesday and Saturday in an elevator and Wednesday in a trash can in a restroom.

Police have asked residents and staff to watch for anything suspicious. They've also posted "crime alert" bulletins around the southeast Ohio campus in hopes of receiving tips that may lead to an arrest.

About 160 students live in Martzolff House on four floors.

The fires have caused about $1,000 in damage.
