FARGO—NDSU is studying up, after a routine fire inspection gave both Ladd Hall and Dunbar Laboratory a bad grade.
The Fargo Fire Department found significant fire code violations in the NDSU buildings on May 24th.
They were built in 1910 and 1963 and house both the chemistry and pharmacy offices and classrooms.
The fire marshal cited "careless and improper storage of hazardous materials" as a primary factor.
Dunbar has a past of fires, chemical hazards and other mishaps, according to Fargo Fire Department incident reports.
In a statement, NDSU says it plans to be in compliance in time for the follow-up inspection on July 14th.
