Pranks involving fire are not safe and can lead to serious injuries or death. Such jokes can backfire with deadly consequences, which happens more often than you might think. Cornell Police and the University Fire Marshal continue to investigate recently reported arsons and are seeking your help in sharing information about the incidents. Arson prevention and reporting are crucial for everyone’s safety. Report information by emailing the Cornell Police Investigations Unit, calling 607-255-1111, or making an anonymous report via the Silent Witness system.
