Transcript Ezekiel Cullen burns It was a chilly afternoon in December when the KUHF disc-jockey, broadcasting from the fifth floor of Ezekiel Cullen announced, "Due to circumstances beyond our control, we are signing off the air." Little did any of the listeners know at the time that Ezekiel Cullen was on fire, and that the fire was one of the major fires in Houston this year. The five students operating the radio station were trapped briefly because the fire, believed to have been caused by a defective hotplate in the faculty lounge, had just about cleaned out the fourth floor of the main part of the building. The portion of Calhoun Street in front of the campus was temporarily blocked to all traffic except numerous emergency vehicles. City firemen fought the blazes for several hours before all the flames were under control. Although the only destruction to other parts of the building was a slight smoke damage and heavy water damage, the fire department took precautions. Tarps were placed on the desk in Dr. Philip Hoffman's office to protect it from water damage. The president's office is located on the second floor directly below where the fire started. Luckily no records or student transcripts were lost in the blazes. The only known injuries were due to smoke inhalation. It's now May, and all the visible scars of the tragic event are gone; however, the smell of smoke still lingers in the main part of the building. ■* 95
