Martic Elementary School was evacuated on Friday February 24, 2012 due to a smell of propane in the building. The Rawlinsville Fire Department responded. After investigation, fire officials could find no leak or gas release on school property. At no time were students and staff in danger. Shortly afterwards, Lancaster County Emergency Management reported that the smell was due to a major release (app. 200,000 gallons) of a petroleum product in New Jersey.
