TULSA -- A college preparatory school in east Tulsa was evacuated Thursday due to a rash that officials said was "rapidly spreading."

Officials said 13 students and two adults were taken to the hospital in non-emergent condition.

Tulsa Fire Department officials said the school has been cleared and is safe.

Executive Director of the school, Chelsea Vanacoure, said the rash may have been caused by someone's cologne or a cleaning solution.
