Five adults and one child were hospitalized for evaluation after a carbon monoxide leak Tuesday morning at Dickey Hill Elementary/Middle school, a Baltimore fire spokesman said.

The evaluations were a precautionary measure, according to fire Capt. Roman Clark. "It doesn't appear to be anything life-threatening," he said.

The source of the leak at the school, in West Baltimore's Wakefield neighborhood, was reported just after 8 a.m., identified by Baltimore Gas and Electric Co. crews and contained, Clark said. The building was ventilated, and classes were canceled for the day.
