Fire displaces Lehigh students

BETHLEHEM, Pa. - Five Lehigh University students were displaced and one was taken to a hospital with serious injuries after a fire ripped through an off-campus house early Tuesday morning.

Crews responded to the 2-alarm fire in the 400 block of Montclair Street in south Bethlehem around 2 a.m.

Ten other people had to be evacuated from two other nearby buildings as firefighters knocked down the flames.

The fire is still under investigation, but fire officials said it appears to be accidental in nature.
