CORRECTION TO THIS ARTICLE: Because of incorrect information supplied to The Tech by Cambridge Fire Department Public Information Office Deputy Chief James F. Burns, a front-page “In Short” item on Tuesday incorrectly stated that the investigation into the Sept. 8 trash chute fire at East Campus was closed. Lieutenant David J. Pierce of the CFD’s Fire Investigations Unit states that the investigation is “still ongoing” and that the CFD does not comment on ongoing investigations.
