UNL Police Assistant Chief Charlotte Evans says someone tried to start a cork board on fire in the 3rd floor lobby.

Evans says the smoldering board created heavy smoke in the hallways and everyone was evacuated.

Officials believe it was an attempted arson. A Nebraska State Fire Marshal's investigator was on the scene.
