WAPATO, Wa -    The Wapato School District was concerned that smoke from the fire at Yakima Fruit and Cold Storage could pose a risk to nearby Pace High School.  All 150 students from the school were evacuated this morning for an hour and a half.  The superintendent says they were taken to Wapato High School and returned to Pace by mid-morning.

He also had the school district office evacuated.  About 15 employees work there, and they were allowed to go back to work after an hour and a half.
