BELLINGHAM -- A health official in Bellingham says three college students who began to feel dizzy and lethargic after living for several months in a rental house have been told to find a new home after the house tested positive for methamphetamine.
KOMO-TV reported that Whatcom County Health Department supervisor Jeff Hegedus said the Western Washington University students contacted the health department to ask that the home be tested.
Hegedus said Friday that an initial health department test found meth contamination well above Whatcom County's legal limit. A second test done by a decontamination contractor came back with an even higher meth reading.
The health department official said the house was marked "unfit for occupancy" and the owners were told to hire a licensed decontamination contractor, which they did.
