PEABODY, MASS. (WHDH) - Six Peabody High School students were hospitalized as a precaution Monday morning following a chemical scare.
Firefighters responding to a report of an unknown smell at the Lowell Street school around 8 a.m. met with the students who complained of feeling ill, Superintendent Cara Murtagh said.
The potential hazardous materials scene was traced back to a chemical room but nothing was found.
The students have since been cleared to go back to school.
