Students Suffer Burn Injuries in Pennsylvania

Posted on November 29th, 2012 No Comments

Middle school students were injured in Pennsylvania after a chemical fire started in a science classroom. Twenty five students were inside an 8th grade science classroom when a chemical fire broke out. According to reports, the students in the classroom were hovering around a table where the teacher was conducting a science experiment when the incident unfolded.

When the teacher combined two separate chemicals, a fire ball formed. The fire was quickly extinguished with a fire extinguisher that was located inside the classroom, but not before five students received varying degrees of burn injuries. Two other students suffered from smoke inhalation as a result of the chemical fire. 

Two students that were burned in the fire were transported via helicopter to Johns Hopkins Hospital in Baltimore. Officials who are investigating the classroom fire are still uncertain as to which chemicals caused the hazardous flames. The students returned to the middle school this morning, and counselors were on hand to make sure that they went about their daily routine as easily as possible.
