An elementary school in San Francisco's Hayes Valley neighborhood was evacuated this afternoon after a school official smelled gas in a hallway, according to a fire department spokeswoman.

An official at John Muir Elementary School, located at 380 Webster St., reported the possible gas leak at 12:42 p.m. after smelling gas in the school's main hallway, fire spokeswoman Mindy Talmadge said.

No students were sickened, but officials evacuated the school as a precaution.

Fire crews detected a faint smell of gas in the main lobby, but PG&E crews did not pick up any gas on their monitors, Talmadge said.

PG&E remained at the scene to investigate this afternoon.
