VANCOUVER - Eight people were taken to the hospital after a hazardous chemical exposure at Skyview High School.

All eight, including students and adults, were taken to Salmon Creek Legacy hospital for respiratory distress, Clark County deputies said.

Hazmat teams secured the leaked chemical compound and there was no immediate hazard, they added.

The area was being treated as a crime scene. It was unknown what the chemical was. Investigators suspected a student brought it into the school.
