College Evacuation During HAZMAT Investigation

The odor from a beaker that boiled dry on a hot plate prompted evacuations at a Southern Colorado college Tuesday.

It happened at Wheeler Hall at Otero Junior College. The building was closed while HAZMAT investigated what was going on in the Chemistry lab.

The La Junta fire department says no injuries were reported.
