Six students and a teacher were taken to hospitals Monday after a fire erupted during a classroom science experiment at Eastern Regional High School in Voorhees.
The teacher and five of the students were treated at Virtua Voorhees hospital and released, Voorhees Police Chief Louis Bordi said Tuesday morning. The sixth student was taken to Cooper University Hospital in Camden and then transferred to St. Christopher's Hospital for Children in Philadelphia for treatment of "more serious injuries." That student's condition has not been released.
