Savannah State University Fire Ruled as Electrical

An examination of the fluorescent light fixture in question revealed that the interior components of the ballast were virtually destroyed.

Officials have ruled a fire that broke out in the Kennedy Fine Arts Building at Savannah State University, Georgia, in mid-October to be electrical.

According to a report from the Savannah Morning News, an examination of the fluorescent light fixture in question revealed that the interior components of the ballast were virtually destroyed, while the inspection of the second light fixture ballast revealed that the interior components were basically intact.

Griswold Consulting, an independent firm specializing in forensic fire and electrical analysis, conducted the investigation. The final conclusion names a fluorescent light ballast as the cause of the fire.
