BELLINGHAM, Wash. (AP) — A health official in northwest Washington state says three college students who began to feel dizzy and lethargic while living for several months in a rental house have been told to move after the home tested positive for methamphetamine.

KOMO-TV reports (http://is.gd/5u36Oo ) that Whatcom County Health Department supervisor Jeff Hegedus says the Western Washington University students contacted the department to ask that the Bellingham house 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.

Hegedus says the house was marked "unfit for occupancy" and the owners were told to hire a licensed decontamination contractor, which they did.

Bellingham is about 90 miles north of Seattle.
