An air conditioner malfunction caused a fire alarm to go off at Ellison High School on Friday. 

Killeen ISD said it happened at 2:30 p.m. Friday afternoon. The district said that a blower motor on an air condition unit in a science lab burned out, which triggered the alarm. 

Students and staff evacuated the building until the all-clear was given. 

The City of Killeen Fire Department responded. 

Students and staff resumed their regularly scheduled activities.
