Two Brandeis University post-doctoral students were burned in a lab accident Friday morning, the Bostonchannel.com is reporting.

Officials said Waltham police and fire departments responded to a fire at the school just after 11 a.m. Police said a female student badly burned her legs, and when her male lab partner tried to help her, he burned his hands.

Both were taken to Massachusetts General Hospital for treatment. The cause of the fire was unknown.
