ROCHESTER, Minn. (KTTC) -

Students at John Adams Middle School had to evacuate Thursday afternoon in response to a natural gas leak scare. 

A teacher smelled the gas and quickly pulled a fire alarm on the wall.

Rochester firefighters rushed to the school and students were evacuated to various locations on the grounds. 

Minnesota Energy Resources experts joined firefighters on the scene, and according to a fire captain, the odor was emanating from the boiler room.

Eventually, a local plumbing company helped perform some repair work to take care of the situation.
