Laramie, Wy – Investigators have identified the cause of Wednesday's fire in the University of Wyoming's Biological Sciences Building. That fire caused about 150 thousand dollars in damage.
The Laramie fire marshal says the cause was likely mechanical damage to a power strip.
The fire started Wednesday evening and was controlled in about 35 minutes.
A Professor says some research was destroyed, but the extent of the intellectual property losses is still being determined.
