CHESAPEAKE, Va. (WAVY) - Students were pulled from their classes in Chesapeake after smoke set off a detector Thursday morning.
Capt. Mike Thibeault with the Chesapeake Fire Department said an alarm sounded at Great Bridge High School around 11:15 a.m. Crews arrived on scene about four minutes later and the building was evacuated.
According to Thibeault, a belt had been thrown into an HVAC unit, causing a small amount of smoke. The smoke set off a duct detector in the fire protection system.
No fire was found.
Students returned to their classes about 20 minutes later. No one was hurt.
Four teenagers have been arrested in connection to a fight at Oscar Smith Middle School Halloween night.
