Chief: Drinking Game Caused Fire
BLOOMSBURG — A drinking game got heated in Columbia County.
Bloomsburg’s fire chief tells us students lit a ping pong ball on fire Friday during a game of beer pong in a first floor apartment at the old Hotel Magee on West Main Street.
The flaming ball fell onto a bed, the mattress caught fire, and students tried to put it out with fire extinguishers.
Firefighters were called.
No one was hurt.
