Officials say a lithium battery might have started a fire that partially destroyed a modular office building at Boise State University over the weekend.
State Fire Marshal Knute Sandahl tells the Idaho Statesman investigators are closely looking at the recharging of a lithium battery.
The fire on Saturday destroyed part of an office building and damaged equipment that's part of the school's robotics lab.
Sandahl didn't have a damage estimate, but predicted it would be in the tens of thousands of dollars.
There were no reports of injuries.
