“Hazardous Odor” Assaults Waiakea Intermediate

Hawaii County police and fire department personnel responded to reports of “hazardous odor” at Hilo’s Waiakea Intermediate School on West Puainako Street shortly after 1 p.m. on Tuesday, Dec. 17.  At least one student reportedly became dizzy from the fumes, which the Fire Department’s HAZMAT team concluded had probably “originated off-site and was delivered by the wind. The smell quickly dissipated, and an “all clear” was issued for students and faculty within an hour.
