Area school evacuated after smoke spreads through rooms

KILLEEN, TX (KXXV) -

Students at Lott Elementary School were evacuated for a short time Wednesday after an AC line in the school caught fire.

Around noon, an air conditioning repair man was working on a unit outside of the school, when the insulation on one of the AC lines caught fire.

It burned about four feet along the insulation wire, before it was extinguished. The AC unit then sucked in smoke from the blaze and distributed it into the computer lab and nurse's office.

That led to the school being evacuated until the smoke was cleared. No damage was done to the school. Several fire and police units responded to the scene.
