Chemistry teacher burned, science wing evacuated

STOUGHTON, Wis. (AP) -- A chemistry teacher has been taken to the hospital and the science wing has been evacuated at Stoughton High School after a classroom experiment went awry.

School officials say the female teacher suffered burns in a small fire Monday morning. Students who were in the chemistry classroom are being evaluated by first responders.

Superintendent Assistant Bev Mansfield says there was a lot of smoke, so about ten classrooms in the science wing were evacuated.

There's no immediate word on the teacher's condition.
