Pullman fire officials responded Tuesday night to the fourth suspected arson fire in the past two weeks on the Washington State University campus.

The fire department arrived at the Fine Arts Center on the 1600 block of Northeast Wilson Road shortly after 10 p.m. Tuesday after a resident reported smelling smoke from the parking garage of the building. WSU Police Lt. Steve Hansen said the flames were contained to a concrete stairwell, where it appeared that someone had set fire to paper materials on multiple landings.
