WATERLOO (KWWL) -

Central Middle School in Waterloo filled with smoke this morning, forcing the closure of the print shop and book center.

Tara Thomas, spokesperson for the district says a contractor was doing some pipe work at the school when a spark hit some fiberglass insulation causing enough smoke to set off the fire alarm.

No kids were in the school because today is a professional development day for teachers. The building was not evacuated.

Thomas says the print shop and book center are closed for the rest of the day due to the smell.

There were staff in other parts of the building, but they were not impacted.
