Ohio Dorm Evacuated After Fire
Jan. 22, 2000
TIFFIN, Ohio (AP) _ A fire on the top floor of a dormitory at Heidelberg College early Saturday forced the evacuation of dozens of students.
No injuries were reported from the fire that was confined to the third floor of Williard Hall, said college spokesman Jamie Abel.
The dormitory is home to 70 students, but Abel did not know how many were in the building when the fire broke out around 4 a.m. The cause has not been determined.
Heidelberg, a private college affiliated with the United Church of Christ, has 1,200 students and is located about 40 miles southeast of Toledo.
The blaze came three days after a fire killed three students and injured 58 others in a dorm at Seton Hall University in South Orange, N.J.
