Fire Starts in Dumpster at Keystone College

LA PLUME— One person was taken to the hospital after a fire on a college campus in Wyoming County.

A fire started in a dumpster outside Hollinshead Hall just before midnight at Keystone College.

Crews believe something thrown down a garbage chute started the flames.

According to the college, about 50 students had to leave their rooms and were relocated to other facilities on campus.

A Keystone security officer was taken to the hospital for breathing in smoke.

Crews said the dormitory suffered some smoke damage. The school has brought in a professional cleaning service to clean the building and test the air quality.

College officials expect students to be able to return to the dormitory after Easter break.
