Three adults and one child were taken to the hospital for evaluation after someone reported a possible gas leak at a school near 14th Street earlier this morning.
The D.C. Fire and EMS hazmat unit was called to the St. Augustine Catholic School (1421 V St. NW) to investigate the reported leak around 8 a.m. today.
Firefighters initially said five people were possibly sickened during the incident, but only four were taken to the hospital as a precautionary measure.
Hazmat crews searched the building but did not find evidence of a gas leak.
