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.
