    (Published Wednesday, Oct. 31, 2018)

    A hazmat team was called to a Massachusetts college Wednesday evening due to a reported odor in one of the buildings.

    Quincy fire officials said crews responded to Quincy College shortly before 6 p.m. for the reported odor on the third floor of a building.

    As a result, a hazmat team was requested.

    Authorities said one female victim was overcome by the odor. Several others were transported to an area hospital for non-life threatening injuries.

    The building was evacuated and fire officials conducted a floor-by-floor analysis.

    Around 9 p.m., officials deemed the building safe and cleared the scene.

    School officials said evening classes at Presidents Place were canceled due to building maintenance.
