WATERLOO (KWWL) - A Waterloo elementary school was briefly evacuated for a smoking light fixture after most students had gone home for the day Wednesday.

Waterloo Schools spokeswoman Tara Thomas told KWWL that a light fixture that was smoking triggered a fire alarm at Irving Elementary School in Waterloo on Wednesday around 4 p.m.

Employees still in the building were evacuated, including children in an after-care program, according to Thomas.

Firefighters gave the all-clear signal after about 10 minutes, she said.

There were no injuries and no reports of damage.
