ATHENS, Ohio -- A fire at an Ohio University fraternity forced about 30 students out of their home Friday morning.

The fire at the Beta Theta Pi house was reported about 7 a.m.

Rick Campopiano of Burton, Ohio, said that he was awakened by the smell of smoke. He said that he tried to put the fire out but was unable to, so he began yelling for everyone to get out.

OU police Lt. Steve Noftz said that a student hurt her arm jumping out of a second-floor window but that there were no serious injuries.

The Bromley Hall dormitory next door was evacuated as well, but dozens of students were let back inside after the fire was under control.

Athens Fire Chief Bob Troxel said that the fraternity house sustained extensive damage.
