School evacuates because of suspicious smell

ROY, Utah — Students at Lakeview Elementary in Roy evacuated the building briefly Thursday morning.

There were reports of a mysterious smell at approximately 9:30 a.m. It was making students and faculty feel ill.

The Roy Fire Department responded and evacuated the school, moving the children and faculty to a nearby church.

“Command’s biggest decision was to get the kids out so we could determine what was going on,” said Chief Jason Poulsen, Roy Fire Department.

Chief Poulsen said they are not sure what caused the smell, although the weather may have been a factor.

No one was transported to the hospital and classes resumed by 11 a.m.
