Chemical closes 5 classrooms in Teaneck

Five classrooms at a middle school in Teaneck will be closed-off today. That's because air samples at the Benjamin Franklin Middle School found elevated levels of the cancer-causing chemical, benzene.

A spokesman for the school district says the levels are not dangerous.

But the classrooms will remain closed until the state department of health makes a final determination.
