Three Ballou High School students became sick after apparently having reactions to apples they ate on campus Monday, fire officials say.

Officials say that three students were taken to Children's Hospital for evaluation, but officials say that none of the students were seriously ill.

Department of Health officials also responded to the scene and tested the air quality at the Southeast D.C. school to check on other potential hazards. Their readings came back normal.
