Several Madera County students were accidently sprayed with a pesticide Wednesday morning. It happened just after 7:00 a.m. at Avenue 11 and Road 21.

According to fire officials, a tractor was spraying sulfur on some grape orchards which happened to be near some kids waiting for the school bus.

Madera County Haz Mat teams showed up. They checked the kids out and they are expected to be okay.

Authorities are now trying to figure out why the tractor was spraying so close to the kids.
