UCA building back open after evacuation

CONWAY, Ark. (AP) - A building at the University of Central Arkansas is back open after being evacuated and 11 people were treated at a local hospital.

Five students, five UCA police officers and a paramedic were treated for nausea Thursday after Burdick Hall was evacuated when students fell ill during a class at about 10:45 a.m. No serious injuries were reported.

 The Fire Department and an Air quality company inspected the building last night & again this morning, and say the air quality is now fine. They, however, don't know what caused the oxygen levels in the building to dip yesterday. They will continue to monitor the situation.

Health and science and liberal arts classes are held in the building - which also houses the university's information technology department.
