Fire Displaces Loras College Students From Dorm
A fire broke out early Wednesday morning at the Visitation Residence Hall at Loras College in Dubuque.
Sue Hafkemeyer, Loras College communications director, says all 44 students in the hall were evacuated safely. The evacuated students received food, water and clothing at a nearby shelter.
Fire fighters have not officially determined the cause of the fire, but it could have started after lightning struck during severe weather overnight.
