Twelve people at the Ronald McDonald House near the University of Maryland Medical Center have been taken to area hospitals with nausea, a fire spokesman said Wednesday night.
Nine adults and three children at the facility located at 635 W. Lexington St. fell ill, said Captain Roman Clark. He could not describe the illness beyond saying that the individuals all felt nauseous and that the sickness was not life threatening.
Paramedics responded to a call around 8:30 p.m., he said. Firefighters inspected the facility for hazards that may have casued the sickness and found nothing, Clark said, and the cause remains unknown.
