DALLAS, Pa. (AP) — A personal care home in northeastern Pennsylvania had to be evacuated after a water pipe burst, forcing out dozens.

Officials say no one was hurt but 59 people were displaced when it happened at the Back Mountain Care Center in Dallas Township on Sunday afternoon. The water also caused part of a first-floor ceiling to collapse.

Residents were taken by school buses to a temporary shelter at a nearby middle school.

Fire officials say the evacuation was orderly.
