Fri 1-11-2019

(Estherville)-- A smell of smoke resulted in the evacuation of DeMoney Elementary School in Estherville for awhile yesterday morning. 

An email sent to parents says the building was evacuated out of an abundance of caution. Students were taken to the Regional Wellness Center.

The Estherville Fire Department responded to the scene and worked with school officials to determine the source of the smell. 

Students, teachers and administrators were allowed back into the building after the source of the smell was discovered and it was determined there was no threat.
