WINONA, TX (KLTV) - An elementary and middle school in Smith County were evacuated Tuesday morning after students and staff reported smelling gas in the building.

Winona Volunteer Fire Department Lieutenant Ryan Cobb said fire units were called to assist the Winona Police Department to check for a gas leak inside Winona Elementary.

Cobb said a gas detector was used to check for any leaks, but none were found. As a precaution, students in both the middle school and elementary buildings were evacuated.

Middle school students were allowed to return to the building just after 10 a.m. Winona Elementary Principal Joshua Snook said students at the elementary were beginning to return to their classrooms around 10:15 a.m.

Winona Independent School District is located 14 miles northeast of Tyler.
