By Matthew Keck —

A University of Louisville student was arrested Feb. 29 for starting a fire in Miller Hall.

Antonio Spuria, 18, was the student arrested and charged with arson and wanton endangerment.

John Karman, U of L spokesman, said that he is still enrolled at U of L but has not returned to the dorms since the incident.

The fire was reported around 2 a.m. on Feb. 29, on the second floor of Miller Hall. ULPD’s report stated that Spuria had set fire in a 55-gallon garbage that set off the sprinkler system.

During the time of the fire, the full dorm had to be evacuated. Crews came in to clean up and replace the sprinkler once safe to do so.

Karman said that the only damage caused by this incident was a broken sprinkler. There were no injury reports.
