BALTIMORE (WCMH) — A “strange odor” at a Baltimore high school that prompted an evacuation turned out to be the scent of pumpkin spice.
The school evacuated around 2:30pm Thursday after students reported smelling a strange odor, 11 News reports. Fire officials say the irritant was, in fact, a pumpkin spice air freshener.
The school’s president told 11 News the odor may have been a burned-out light bulb.
Officials said two students and three adults were taken to hospitals with unknown injuries, and dozens of students were triaged at the scene.
