Wakefield High School Evacuated Due to Gas Odor

Wakefield High School was evacuated this afternoon due to a report of a strong odor of gas coming from a science lab.

Firefighters investigated and determined the gas odor was actually coming from lawnmowers that were being used outside. The odor had wafted into the school from an open door, according to principal Doris Jackson.

Students returned to class shortly after 2:00 p.m.
