Fire damages building at Princeton, NJ Theological Seminary
PRINCETON — A fire caused heavy damage to a building at the Princeton Theological Seminary.
Princeton police said the fire was reported around 5:10 a.m. on the third floor of Lenox House along Stockton Street (Route 206) at Library Place. Video of the fire showed flames shooting out of the roof. The fire reached two alarms before being brought under control two hours later, according to police.
No firefighters or anyone in the building was injured in the fire.
The Seminary said the building is used primarily as faculty offices and was empty at the time of the fire.
The Princeton Theological Seminary, a private school located near the Princeton University campus, was established in 1812 and is the second oldest seminary in the United States. Lenox House was originally a library built in the 1800s, one of two at the Seminary.
It's the second fire in Princeton in the past week. A garage fire on Armour Road left the house uninhabitable after it spread to the home, according to MidJersey.news.
