Pumpkin spice is EVERYWHERE. And it’s so pervasive that it forced the evacuation of a Baltimore-area school.

They ran several tests that all came back negative. 

Whatever the smell was ended up sending two students and two teachers to a hospital, WBFF reported.

Firefighters had the windows in the school opened to air the building out, when the source of the smell was discovered: an aerosol plugin with a canister of Pumpkin Spice room spray.
