WKU Police, the Bowling Green Fire Department, the bureau Of Alcohol, Tobacco, And Firearms, and the local state fire marshal are all continuing to investigate the fires that were intentionally set in "Cherry Hall" early Sunday morning.
Western authorities say wadded up paper was used to start multiple fires in the 70-year-old building. The worst damage was done to the ITV classroom which was completely gutted. That room was used to teach interactive classes to Western's satellite campuses. The preliminary damage estimate is $500,000.
