Lorain elementary school closed for strange smell

LORAIN, OH (WOIO) - Admiral King Elementary School is closed Wednesday for an odor investigation.

Students and staff were evacuated Tuesday due to the smell.

Columbia Gas workers responded to the scene and took several tests. They tell 19 Action News their tests show the smell is not natural gas, but further testing needs to be done to determine where the smell is coming from.

Officials are hoping to get those results either late today or Thursday.

Lorain school officials say nobody will be allowed back in the building until they get those results.
