Nashua elementary school cancels classes due to gas buildup

Posted: Updated:
NASHUA (AP) -

Officials canceled classes Monday at an elementary school in northern Iowa because of a buildup of natural gas.

District officials said kitchen workers smelled the gas as they walked in, so they soon walked back out.

The Nashua Fire Department found that stove pilot lights had gone out over the weekend.

School officials said the closure was precautionary as the building was being aired out.

Classes were expected to resume Tuesday.
