Around 9am this morning @dcfireems tweeted a simple message that still has me scratching my head:
“Harbin Hall 3700 O St NW – haz mat – PD found drug lab – EMS evaluated 7 – no transports – dorm evacuated”

Update 4:39pm: As some commenters have noted @DCFireems updates:
“Update – Georgetown U – haz mat – Campus officials say NOT Meth but Dimethyltryptamine (DMT-hallucinogenic) drug lab- 3 arrests – no inj”
