SOUTH AMBOY, N.J. (AP) - Nearly two dozen students were evaluated at a hospital after an unknown odor was detected in two classrooms at a central New Jersey school.

Police responded to the South Amboy elementary school around 11:30 a.m. Wednesday, shortly after the odor was detected. Students were then taken to an off-site location while crews tried to determine what caused the odor, but a determination had not been made as of late Wednesday night.

Authorities say 23 students who may have been exposed to the odor were taken to the hospital as a precaution. But no injuries or health issues were reported.

The two classrooms are being isolated and monitored by officials. Authorities said the school would be open Thursday unless the testing turns up problems.
