ALHAMBRA, Calif. (AP) - Classes have resumed at Alhambra High School following an evacuation prompted by a report of a gas smell.

Police and fire officials along with a hazmat crew swept the campus as a precaution Tuesday morning.

In a post on its Facebook page, Alhambra police said nothing was found that would indicate a critical or hazardous situation existed.

Students gathered for several hours on a campus ball field after someone reported smelling gas in a classroom before school started. They were let back inside around 10 a.m.

The investigation is ongoing.

During the evacuation police limited traffic on the streets surrounding the suburban school east of Los Angeles.
