More than 230 students at Ladd Grade School were evacuated to the Ladd Fire Station Wednesday after a gas smell was reported about 9:40 a.m. Students spent about four hours at the station before being taken back to school by buses. Superintendent Michelle Zeko reported the smell came from a rooftop heating unit and not a gas leak. Personnel from Ameren and fire department went through the building to find the smell’s source.
