Broadbeck Hall is the oldest building on Hood’s campus and home to its music facilities. No injuries have been reported, and the cause is now under investigation.

In a statement released by Hood President Andrea Chapdelaine, she said that, although there is no cause of the fire that has been determined, it appeared that the fire was contained primarily to the third floor.
