GREENVILLE Co., SC (WSPA) – Ralph Chandler Middle School was evacuated as a precautionary measure around 12:30 p.m. Wednesday because of a strange smell in the building, according to Beth Brotherton with Greenville Co. Schools.

Brotherton said fire officials determined it was related to the use of spray paint that got into the air handling system.  

The students are safe and they expect them to be back in the building within the next 30 minutes, according to Brotherton.
