MANCHESTER, N.H. (AP) - Police say a high school in Manchester, New Hampshire, has been evacuated after a chemical odor was smelled throughout the building.

Police say the custodial staff was working in the gymnasium at Manchester High School West with a solution that could be detected throughout the school. The school was evacuated at about 11:15 a.m. Friday. Due to poor ventilation, some students reported nausea, headaches and other symptoms.

The Manchester Fire Department and American Medical Response Ambulance also were on the scene.

Police said several students were being treated at school and the situation was under control. It wasn’t known when students would be allowed back into their classrooms.
