Hazmat team called to bank in Northampton County for 2nd time in week

ALLEN TWP., Pa; - A bank in Northampton County is the scene of a haz mat incident--the second one in less than a week.

Crews were called to First Northern Bank at 102 Commerce Drive in Allen Township just before 10 a.m. Wednesday for a hazardous materials incident.

The bank was evacuated, and one person was sent to the hospital.

There's not word yet on the cause of the incident.

Three people became sick inside the same bank last Thursday. There was no word on what caused that reaction.

All of the bank's employees had to be decontaminated after last week's incident.
