ORLANDO, Fla. - Officials say a worker was slightly injured today at Odyssey Middle School, the site of a massive cleanup of World War II munitions.
The worker was injured after he uncovered a six-inch metal device that caught fire and emitted smoke.
Officials say the worker complained of trouble breathing and was taken to a hospital as a precaution. The worker has been treated and released.
Orange County school district spokesman Dylan Thomas says the area is safe and will open Monday.
