PROVO, Utah — A fire at a Brigham Young University museum sent up a large plume of black smoke Monday morning, but none of the exhibits at the museum were damaged, according to a twitter account associated with the museum.
The fire happened around 11 a.m. at the Monte L. Bean Life Science Museum.
The museum is currently closed due to construction and is expected to reopen this fall, according to a message on the museum’s website.
“Most of our exhibits are in storage because of construction. None were in the area,” another @beanmuseum tweet said.
