Forty-seven students at Narbonne High School in Harbor City were examined Thursday by paramedics for minor respiratory and eye irritation after school police broke up a fight by discharging pepper spray, an official said.

The fight was apparently between two girls, witnesses on the scene said. School police were called shortly after 10 a.m.

Students hit with pepper spray rinsed their eyes and some briefly accepted oxygen; a 16-year-old with lingering respiratory irritation was in good condition at a hospital, said Brian Humphrey, a spokesman for the Los Angeles Fire Department.
