As black smoke filled the air, MSU students living in Chandler Crossings building six could only hope for the best. Laura Armando is a Michigan State Senior, and one of 36 students who had to evacuate. “I thought someone just left the burner on, or something like that. I thought it was funny. I started Snap-Chatting, and all of a sudden, I look over, and the entire roof is in flames,” Armando said.
A fire at Chandlers Crossing in East Lansing has displaced dozens of residents. Michigan elections are right around the corner, and voters need to be aware of polling changes. And, Batman and Superman recently made a visit to MSU’s campus. Some students got to be extras in the movie. Focal Point is an Emmy awarding winning, student produced newscast from the School of Journalism at Michigan State University.
For students who live in Chandler Crossings, the answer isn’t simple. If you live on one side of the street, you are an East Lansing resident. Live on the other side, and you reside in Clinton County. I found out that I am a Clinton County resident when a small fire broke out in my kitchen of my apartment at The Club at Chandler Crossings. I asked my neighbor to call the East Lansing Fire Department for me. But when she did, the operator told her to call 911 in Bath Twp.
