City of Grambling and Lincoln Parish firefighters responded to two calls Monday afternoon at GSU’s Pinchback Hall. The first call came in to GSU police at 12:05 p.m., followed by a second call at 2:44 p.m., Sgt. Freddie Peterson said.

Peterson said investigators are treating the two fires, which happened on different floors, as well as another fire last week, as separate incidents.

However, they believe all of the fires are connected.

The first two fires occurred when someone lit paper in a trash can. Those two fires were put out by fire extinguishers.
