Minn. School Briefly Evacuated For Chemical Smell

COTTAGE GROVE, Minn. (AP) — An elementary school in the eastern Twin Cities was briefly evacuated because of a chemical smell in the hallway.

Police were called to Grey Cloud Elementary about 3:45 p.m. Monday, around the time school was getting out for the day.
