A South Longview daycare reopened Thursday morning after a half-hour evacuation when workers detected a gaseous odor.

Fire, hazardous materials and police units responded to Longview Child Development Center, in the 1200 block of South High Street, shortly after 8 a.m.

Administrators said they smelled gas in the front entryway and hallways before evacuating children to a nearby playground and calling authorities and parents. Several parents arrived to pick up their children during the evacuation.

At around 8:50 a.m., crews with Longview Hazardous Materials and Rescue Unit tested the air and determined that it was safe for children to return to the building.
