UPDATE: Chemical-based fumes in gym causes West High in Manchester to evacuate
MANCHESTER — West High School in Manchester has been temporarily evacuated due to chemical-based fumes coming from cleaning products on Friday.
The custodial staff was working in the gymnasium when they used a chemical, which released an odor, which spread throughout the school, according to police.
Police said that due to poor ventilation, some students reported being nauseous, having headaches, and other minor side-effects.
Manchester Fire Department and American Medical Response Ambulance were immediately notified and are currently on the scene treating the students.
The situation is under control and it is unknown when the students will return to class.
