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.
