EAST LANSING (AP) – Authorities say they had to break down doors and rouse drunken students during fires at a fraternity near Michigan State University.

No one was injured early Friday after a party at Theta Chi fraternity, although the 30 residents were not allowed back in.

East Lansing Fire Marshal Bob Pratt tells TV station WLNS that the fraternity had sprinklers. Otherwise, he says there would have been fatalities. The series of fires is believed to have been intentionally set.

Theta Chi’s alumni corporation issued a statement, saying it’s sad that an “assault” on the fraternity took place.
