Fire breaks out in Culver barracks

Ten cadets at Culver Academies were treated for smoke inhalation on Monday after an early morning fire in one of the barracks.

The fire broke out around 1:00 Monday morning on the third floor of the south barrack.

Investigators report that a cadet put a towel over a lamp and fell asleep while studying. It took about 30 minutes to get the fire under control.

The room has been gutted and the rest of the floor is damaged.
