Indiana University police are searching for whoever set fire to rolls of toilet paper or paper towels inside student residential buildings three times in three days on the Bloomington campus.

The fires -- two in Tulip Tree Apartments and one in Forest Residence Center -- were all in stairwells and caused little damage. University police say the fires happened Thursday, Friday and Saturday nights.

Police Capt. Jerry Minger says whoever set the fires created a danger to students who live in those buildings. He says the fact that there have been multiple fires made the situation more disturbing.

IU police asked Tuesday for anyone with information about who set the fires to contact the department.
