EAST HARTFORD, CT (WFSB) -

An elementary school in East Hartford was on a 90 minute delay due to a gas odor in the building.

School officials told Eyewitness News that the strong odor of gas was detected Monday morning at the John A. Langford Elementary School on Alps Drive.

Children were back in the school before 10:30 a.m.

Gas crews and the fire department went over the facilities and purged the heating system. They said that's where the issue was.

They also said their readings never reached a dangerous level.
