Students return to school after evacuation at Dutch Fork High School

IRMO, SC (WIS) - Students spent about 20 minutes outside Friday because of an odor inside Dutch Fork High School.

Officials told all of the students to leave the school just after noon on Friday because of a report of a gas leak.

The students stood outside on the athletic fields outside the school while the school was inspected.

According to school officials, an odor from a solvent caused the evacuation.

The school was deemed to be safe and everyone was allowed back in just after 12:30 p.m.
