Benton County high school evacuated because of odd smell

The Associated Press

PROSSER, Benton County — A high school in southeast Washington was briefly evacuated and seven people were taken to a hospital as a precaution after a chemical smell was reported in one of the school’s restrooms.

The Tri-City Herald reports that a school district official said Prosser High School was evacuated for about 20 minutes Tuesday afternoon.

Assistant Superintendent Mary Snitily says four students and three staff members were checked at a local hospital and released.

She says the school is trying to determine the cause of the smell, which she says was not a gas leak.
