WINONA, Minn. (KTTC) -- Winona Senior High School was evacuated Tuesday morning after an ammonium sulfide spill.

According to the Winona Fire Department, one of the classrooms was being renovated and construction crews were unaware the chemical was being stored in the room.  During construction, the glass container containing the ammonium sulfide was knocked over, spilling the contents inside.

The building was evacuated at about 9 a.m.  The Winona Fire Department responded to the call and immediately cleaned up the spill. 

School was not in session at the time, but the school's band, teachers and construction workers were in the building.  No injuries were reported.
