Man arrested in suspicious fire at UT dorm

KNOXVILLE, Tenn. (AP) - A man has been arrested on suspicion of setting a fire in the elevator of a University of Tennessee dormitory.

Authorities have not identified the man or said if he was a student.

Greve Hall was evacuated Sunday night after the fire caused the sixth floor of the 380-student hall to fill with smoke. No one was injured.

UT Police Capt. Keith Lambert says the latest fire did not appear to be related to a pair of fires at Humes Hall set last month.

Firefighters also responded to another fire in a vacant building several blocks away from campus on Sunday night.
