HOUSTON -- Firefighters responded to MacArthur High School early Thursday where a gas leak was reported in northeast Houston.

Views from Air 11 showed firefighters on the scene looking over the property with many students outside. Some students were getting checked out by medical responders.

One parent tells KHOU 11 News her daughter texted her and said the smell was so strong that at first they opened all the windows before evacuating outdoors.
