A softball dugout caught fire at Ivy Hill Park, which is adjacent to Seton Hall’s campus, on May 6. No one was injured.
Dr. Mary Meehan, interim president of the school, sent out an email on May 7 informing the SHU community of the fire. She said that the Newark Fire Department responded to a call about the fire at approximately 5 pm.
Meehan also said that the Essex County authorities are investigating the cause of the fire since it is currently unknown and that repairs will be made as soon as possible.
