About 280 strudents at Ogden's St. Joseph's Elementary School were briefly evacuated Wednesday morning due to fumes from a broken-down car.

School spokeswoman Carol Layman said no students were injured and classes had resumed by 9:30 a.m., less than an hour after Ogden firefighters responded and cleared the scene.

The fumes wafted into the school at 2980 Quincy Ave., when a car outside blew its transmission.

Layman said that contrary to some earlier reports, no students fell ill. She described the evacuation as precautionary.
