EMMAUS, Pa. (AP) - November 8, 2010

Authorities in Emmaus, Pa. had to evacuate a senior citizens' high-rise home.

Officials say one of the residents set off several insect foggers in his room.

The intense fumes set off smoke alarms and drew a team of emergency responders.

The Morning Call reports no one was hurt.

However, some of the rooms must be cleaned.
