Classes resume following evacuation of Mountain View High
by Cheryl McDermott

Mountain View High School was evacuated yesterday afternoon when students and staff reported a suspicious chlorine-like odor that caused some persons respiratory distress, prompting the activation of a regional hazardous materials (hazmat) team, authorities said. 

Redmond’s hazardous materials team investigated the source of the chlorine-like odor which prompted evacuation of Mountain View High School in northeast Bend Tuesday afternoon. 
Almost 40 emergency responders were called to the scene in northeast Bend at 2:48 p.m. Tuesday, about the same time the students are dismissed for the day, Fire Inspector Cindy Kettering reported.  Initial personnel on scene at 2755 NE 27th Street were unable to determine the source of the odor, Kettering said, so the decision was made to clear the building of all remaining students and staff and to activate the regional hazmat team from Redmond.

Although no one was transported to a medical facility, two persons received medical treatment on scene, the fire inspector reported.

“There is no health or safety hazard at this time to neighbors, staff or students of Mountain View High School”, Kettering said Tuesday evening, and Bend-La Pine communications manager Julianne Repman confirmed that classes were scheduled to be held as usual today.

The cause of the incident was still unknown late Tuesday evening, and Kettering says the investigation is continuing.

Agencies assisting at the scene included Bend Fire and Rescue, Redmond Fire and Rescue, Bend Police, the Department of Public Works, Pacific Power, and Cascade Natural Gas.
