Philadelphia Academy Charter High School has been evacuated due to a report of smoke inside the building, Action News has reported. The school, which is located at Tomlinson Road in Northeast Philadelphia, was evacuated as a precautionary measure and no injuries have been reported.
UPDATE: The strong gas odor which triggered the brief evacuation was caused due to a chemical spill in the chemistry lab of Philadelphia Academy Charter High School. Students have now been allowed to enter the school building.
Philadelphia Gas Works and a hazmat team cleared the spill and an all-clear was given, CBS reported.
