      New Visions Academy evacuated after strong odor detected in building

      A school in Capitol Heights was evacuated Wednesday morning due to a strong, pungent odor, fire officials say.

      Prince George's County Fire officials say that Haz-Mat crews were called to the New Visions Academy at 8601 Ashwood Dr.

      Crews found that the odor was coming from a stripping compound that construction workers were using on floors in the building.

      No one was injured or sickened by the odor.
