HIGHLANDS RANCH — Deputies say six people were treated and released after a chemical device ruptured in a classroom at a Highlands Ranch school, and two juveniles were taken into custody.

The incident occurred Tuesday at SkyView Academy.

Douglas County Sheriff's Sgt. Ron Hanavan says investigators don't believe the incident was accidental. He declined to release any details, including the nature of the device and the chemical involved.

Investigators are consulting with prosecutors on possible charges against the two juveniles, both males. Their names haven't been released. Authorities haven't said if they were among the injured.

Ambulances took four students and a teacher to a hospital. Another student was taken there by family.

The classroom wasn't damaged.

SkyView offers pre-kindergarten through 12th-grade classes. Officials haven't identified the grade level of the classroom involved.
