One other unidentified female and two firefighters were
transported to the hospital, Heemstra said. An English pro-
fessor later identified the female as Leslie Crowley and.
informed students in an English class of Crowley's injuries.
Crowley, an LSA sophomore, is a member of the women's
basketball team and was treated for smoke inhalation injuries.
Her condition at the hospital could not be confirmed.
One of the firefighters suffered first, second and third
degree burns to his hand, and the other received a cut on
"The firemen that were injured have been released and
are recovering at home," Captain Greg Hollingsworth said.
Residents of 924 Oakland were unavailable for comment.
Investigators are still uncertain how the fire started.
"The cause and origin is all under investigation," said
Battalion Chief Mark Redies.
Detective Kevin Warner said the fire might have started
on a couch located on the porch. Officials are investigating
whether or not it was ignited purposely or accidentally.
. "There (are) reports of fireworks in the area that morning,
but we haven't tied that to the fire," Hollingsworth said.
The house at 924 Oakland was estimated at $300,000.
The cost of its contents was reported at $100,000,
Heemstra added that other nearby houses sustained dam-
ages, including melted blinds and siding and cracked win-
dows. Fallen charred debris was strewn across cars parked
within the vicinity of the site, and two vehicles in the drive-
way were damaged as well.
"Because of the instability of the structure, right now
we can't even get inside to the second and third floors,"
"The first thing they need to do is to secure it, and then
they'll probably demolish it and, I would imagine, rebuild,"
The team's Assistant Media Relations Director David
Ablauf confirmed that earlier Wednesday morning, the
players were taken to Schembechler Hall to rest. Head
Coach Lloyd Carr arrived at the house just before 5:00
a.m. Wednesday, he added.
Ablauf said Carr is working with other team officials to
make travel arrangements for parents of the players.
"Our football office is helping to make sure they're get-
ting into town, getting into contact with their children, their
sons. They're helping coordinate finding them a hotel to
stay in," Ablauf said.
-He added that the NCAA is providing the victims
with the "bare minimum" in terms of clothing and
"Obviously these individuals lost all their posses-
sions, going from wallets to every possession they
own," Ablauf said.
University President Mary Sue Coleman issued a written
statement late Wednesday afternoon regarding the incident.
"Our staff in Student Services is already working with all
affected students and their families to identify alternative
housing arrangements and immediate needs. While this is a
distressing situation for our students, I am very thankful that
no lives were lost," Coleman said in the statement.
