The toilet paper hanging from one of Auburn University’s famed Toomer’s Corner oak trees was set on fire late Saturday night and surveillance footage of the corner appears to show a person intentionally setting the fire.
The toilet paper celebration is a longstanding tradition at Auburn following wins by their football team.
Following Auburn’s 18-13 upset win over No. 18 LSU, the toilet paper caught fire causing damage to the tree.
Surveillance footage obtained by AL.com appears to show a person in dark clothes walk up to the toilet paper and light it on fire. The person appears to be confronted by a woman afterwards, before walking away.
This oak tree was one of the new trees planted at the corned in 2015 after the original trees were poisoned in 2011.
