A Vallejo elementary student was taken to the hospital Wednesday after a likely anxiety attack from a small fire that forced the evacuation of students and staff, officials said.
The Vallejo Fire Department responded to a call at about 12:30 p.m. about smoke coming from one of the boys’ restrooms at Highland Elementary School, Capt. Steve Smircich said.
The toilet paper fire, though small, created a lot of smoke and prompted officials to order the school’s evacuation. Students and staff members spent about an hour sitting on the grass before being allowed back into their classrooms.
