NEWNAN, Ga. (AP) - Officials say Newnan High School was evacuated after multiple reports of a strong chemical odor.

The Newnan Times-Herald reports (http://bit.ly/1KX8wU6) the school’s principal, Chase Puckett, sent a letter home to parents saying the school received several reports of a strong unknown odor in one of the buildings on Tuesday.

In the letter, Puckett says the buildings were evacuated out of an abundance of caution. Puckett says it was determined that an asphalt truck nearby was producing the odor.

Puckett says the truck was removed from the area, and that the affected building was given time to air out.

Once officials determined there was no threat, the instructional day resumed for the students and faculty.
