• Pumpkin spice air freshener prompts evacuation of school

    BALTIMORE (AP) - An unusual smell prompted an evacuation and a hazardous materials response at a Baltimore high school. But after five people were taken to the hospital complaining of upset stomachs, fire officials discovered the source of the smell: a pumpkin spice air freshener.

    Cristo Rey Jesuit High School was evacuated Thursday afternoon after students and teachers detected a strong smell on the third floor. Several people reported difficulty breathing.

    The fire department and a hazardous materials team were called. Fire spokesman Roman Clark said two students and three adults were taken to the hospital for stomach ailments.

    Then, firefighters located a pumpkin spice air aerosol plugged into an outlet in a classroom.

    Classes at the school resumed Friday.
