WASHINGTON (AP) — A dormitory at prestigious Georgetown University was evacuated after a suspected meth lab was found in a room.
Washington fire and emergency services spokesman Pete Piringer said the department's hazardous materials team responded to Harbin Hall around 6:15 a.m. Saturday.
The dorm was evacuated, but seven people were exposed to noxious chemicals, including three students. No one was transported to the hospital.
The investigation is ongoing. It was not immediately known if any suspects had been detained or charged. Police believe some students were involved.
Georgetown spokesman Jordan Gray says about 400 students remained evacuated late Saturday morning while federal agents investigated. Students were sent to various campus buildings.
