School emptied out because of pumpkin spice air freshener

Danger in the air prompted a Baltimore high school to be evacuated this week. It was a strange smell in the school that caused the panic.

On Thursday, students at Cristo Rey Jesuit High School reported a strange odor, some even coughed and had a tough time breathing. A few students and teachers were even taken to the hospital. In response, firefighters were called to investigate and the school was emptied out. Before long they found the source of the strange smell: a pumpkin spice air freshener.

The first clue should have been when the female students were unaffected by the odor.
