Pumpkin Spice Scent Leads To Evacuation At Baltimore High School

A Baltimore school was evacuated Thursday after some students complained about a unusual order and said they had difficulty breathing.

The Cristo Rey Jesuit High School in Baltimore was part of quite the odd occurrence when everyone was evacuated and five people were taken to the hospital in a weird hazmat situation.

Cristo Rey Jesuit High School posted a statement to its website that classes resumed as usual on Friday after the evacuation.

Heiser said several students and teachers reported difficulty breathing.

Two students and three adults were taken to the hospital due to "ailing stomachs".

Firefighters eventually found the source of the smell, which turned out to be a pumpkin spice aerosol plug-in.

'It is not hazardous at all, ' Baltimore Fire Chief Roman Clark said. Emergency medical technicians treated several people at the scene, and five people were sent to the hospital, the school said in a statement.

"We want to make sure that these students and teachers are all safe", he added. Ahead is a sampling of what people are saying about the air freshener from hell.

In America, the month of October means two things: frightful tales of fear and doom, and the annual culture war over pumpkin spice, a combination of nutmeg, ginger, cinnamon, and cloves whose omnipresence provokes joy and hate and in equal measure. I'm sorry to tell you that pumpkin spice lovers might be letting their affection for this fall favorite get a little out of hand.
