FAIRBANKS, Alaska (AP) - Alaska State Troopers say the school in the village of Huslia (HOOS’-lee-uh) was placed in lockdown this week as local residents were exiled from the community.

The Fairbanks Daily News-Miner (https://is.gd/TGVMYE ) reports the brief lockdown occurred Tuesday.

Troopers spokeswoman Megan Peters says the people who were asked to leave are no longer in the Koyukuk River community.

Peters said she couldn’t elaborate on why the residents were exiled, or how many were asked to leave. Peters says troopers are still investigating, and no one has been charged with any crime.

The community of about 275 people is located nearly 260 miles northwest of Fairbanks.
