A fire in a trash container spread to the Wichita State University Fairmount Tower Dorms Wednesday night according to Sedgwick County Dispatch.

The fire was out around 10:45 p.m. shortly after the call came in about 20 minutes earlier. Dispatch says they believe the fire started in an outside commons area dumpster.

The dorms are located at the intersection of 21st street and Hillside. There are two towers, but it is not known which one was on fire.

Dispatch did not say if students living in the dorms were evacuated while crews put out the flames.
