Fumes at the College of William and Mary sent four people to the hospital Tuesday. It lead the college to evacuate the Campus Center building.

School spokesman Brian Whitson said the fumes came from a mixture of cleaning products being used in a kitchen. Whitson said four food service employees complained of nausea and respiratory problems and were taken to a hospital. Their condition was non-critical.

About 50 to 60 people were in the building when the fumes were detected at 9:30 a.m. The building was closed and reopened two hours later after being ventilated and tested.
