UCPD received a report early Tuesday morning alleging that a shed on the corner of Haste and Bowditch streets was on fire, according to a Nixle alert released Tuesday afternoon.
According to the alert, the shed, which is located near the boiler building in the southeast section of the Anna Head Alumnae Hall parking lot, was “engulfed in flames” until the Berkeley Fire Department extinguished the fire. The boiler building sustained minor damage from the fire.
A witness alleged that they saw a man banging on the shed before the fire started. The suspect is described as a Hispanic male.
Anyone with information about the incident is asked to call the UCPD Criminal Investigations Bureau at 510-642-0472 or 510-642-6760.
